BeFloodReady

BeFloodReady provides guidance and information on Property Flood Resilience (PFR), helping homes, businesses and communities to BeFloodReady.

We have created various materials, tools and events which you can find below to help you BeFloodReady.

Missy’s Tale

BeFloodReady are excited to bring you our brand-new film developed by Aardman Animations! Watch the story of what happened when Missy and her human family were not ready for flooding and how PFR has helped them be better prepared for next time!

Resources

We have developed a range of useful resources for you to view and download for free. We have collaborated with a variety of partners to produce materials which will help you understand what PFR is, the different types of measures available and the various funding options.

Our handy PFR booklet was developed with the Communities Prepared team. Download a PDF version here or get in touch if you would like a hard copy!

The Baseline Report was put together following consultation with key partners, including the Environment Agency and Risk Management Authorities (RMAs).

Our short introductory presentation and demonstration video takes you through what we mean by PFR and showcases some of the available PFR measures on the market today!

PFR Products

There are a range of PFR products 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 & Resilience. For more information on the two different types and more general information on what PFR is, please click here.

BeFloodReady SW PFR & Climate Change Demonstration Centre

The South West PFR demonstration centre will be hosted at Heartlands World Heritage site between Redruth and Camborne, Cornwall. Heartlands is a major visitor attraction with over 300,000 visitors per annum, used by the local community and hosts many events.

We have two self-contained units at Heartlands, one to show live demonstrations of PFR measures in action during a flood with example products which you can handle and find out how they work. The second area will be used as an educational space; where there will be interactive displays on how we can manage and prepare for flooding. Here we even have an architectural model house split into two parts: one side fitted with PFR and the other without. We let the water in and see what happens! Seeing is believing, and we believe by seeing first-hand how PFR measures work in flood conditions, the benefits of making a home or business flood resilient will shine through.

Entry to the demonstration site will be free and open to all. Opening hours will appear on the BeFloodReady website prior to the centre opening in August 2021. Heartlands will be a legacy of the BeFloodReady Pathfinder for years to come.
