Evacuation Centres

Police or Flood Wardens may visit to advise you in advance of the need to evacuate, and to offer assistance where possible. They will advise you on when and where to go.  If you intend to self evacuate to somewhere other than the evacuation centre then please advise the Flood Warden team of this when they call.

Please take the advice given by the Police or Flood Wardens
