Flood Wardens are volunteers who, upon receiving flood warning messages, warn a set number of properties in their area of the threat posed from flooding.

Typically, Flood Wardens:

  • Provide feedback to the local authority and the Environment Agency about people and properties living in the floodplain
  • Pass on flood warning information at any time of the day or night
  • Offer advice and information to the public
  • Check that residents in their area have received flood warnings, after they have been issued
  • Identify and support vulnerable members of community
  • Provide vital information during floods, eg the number of properties flooded
  • Provide assistance and facilities at evacuation centres
  • However, they cannot assist in moving furniture or belongings

Flood Wardens will wear high-visibility clothing to identify them. They will also carry an identification badge supplied by North Norfolk District Council. If you are in doubt please ask to see suitable identification.

Please always follow the advice given by your Flood Warden as they have an extensive local knowledge and will only have your personal safety in mind.
