Support for north Wales flood wardens

Flood wardens across north Wales will attend a series of events in order to learn more about their role and how to help their community respond during a flood.

The events are being organised by Natural Resources Wales in partnership with the emergency services, local authorities, utilities companies and local health boards.

At the events, flood wardens will have the opportunity to learn more about the different roles of emergency responders and ask questions or share experiences about the role and responsibilities of flood wardens.

The events will take place at the Conwy Business Centre, Porthmadog Leisure Centre and Flintshire County Council offices.

Eirian Redmayne, from Natural Resources Wales said:

“Recent flood events have shown the real value of flood wardens in communities and we want to make sure that those who have volunteered for the role have all the support and advice they need.

“Flood wardens act as a vital link between the community and the emergency services before, during and after a flood, relaying important information and helping to keep people safe.

“We currently have 190 flood wardens across north Wales and we see this network going from strength to strength in future years.”

People interested in volunteering to become a flood warden for their area should contact their local flood awareness officer on 01248 484029.
