Flood Tips and Safety

Posted on

Turn around – don’t drown! Avoid walking and driving through flooded waters. They could be deeper than you think.

Please avoid being in or near flooded areas. During a flood, there could be sudden water surges and dangerous undercurrents.

It’s also important to stay away from embankments where the water has risen. Erosion may have weakened the bank and it could fail.

Be safe and let our responders focus on the task at hand.
