Flood Re hits the road

Joint government and insurance industry body Flood Re is touring flood-prone cities in the UK to highlight the resilience measures that residents and businesses can instal to mitigate against the risks of increased flooding.

The Floodmobile (pictured), a specially adapted mobile home which showcases 50 examples of property flood resilience measures, is visiting Worcester, York, Hull and Carlisle, before arriving at the COP26 summit venue of Glasgow on 29th October.

Andy Bord, chief executive of Flood Re, said: “At COP26 there will, quite rightly, be a focus on the efforts of nations to reach net zero carbon emissions, but there is an urgent need right now for homes, businesses and governments to adapt to the climate – including the installation of property flood resilience measures.

“The Floodmobile contains 50 great examples of effective, practical and easy-to-install measures which businesses and homeowners can implement now. This will significantly improve the resilience of their buildings to the inevitable increased risk of flood we will face in the coming years as a result of global warming.”
