Property Flood Resilience

 

Property Flood Resilience (PFR), previously referred to as Property Level Protection (PLP), is an important element of flood risk management. PFR covers measures that reduce the risk to people and property, enabling households and businesses to reduce the damage caused by floods and speed up recovery and reoccupation. There are a range of PFR measures available that can be used to help reduce the impact of flooding on a building, whether it be a home or a business premises. PFR is split into two categories: Resistance and Resilience.

The workshop at Heartlands will feature a demonstration of these different measures. However, for our online audience, please watch the video animations and complete the activity checklist below.

Community Resilience

 

Our Community Resilience afternoon workshop is being run by the team at Communities Prepared. It has a focus on the volunteer journey, from getting volunteers signed up to your community flood group to keeping them engaged over the long-term. The team will share some practical tips from existing flood groups around the country and will run activities to help our audience think through what motivates community members to become volunteers and how to make the most of this to grow your group.

For our online audience, we have created this page for you to explore some resources which will help you learn and understand the above goals of the workshop. Please browse through these and remember to complete the activity checklist below! Please get in touch with us via Molly.Flynn@cornwallrcc.org.uk if you would like to discuss community flood plan and group development for your community. Every year we are able to support 5 new communities for free!
