Communities are better prepared to cope during and after an emergency when everyone works together. The Cornwall Community Flood Forum has developed a Community Resilience Toolkit which they have kindly allowed EA to offer to wardens and volunteers in Somerset. This toolkit supports communities to prepare for, respond to and recover from flood events. The purpose of this guidance series is to help you to act safely whilst providing the best level of support to your community during an emergency.
