Flooding can occur at any time of day or night, often with very little warning, so you may have to leave your home at very short notice. If you live in a high flood risk area it's good to be as prepared as possible and that includes having an Emergency Grab Bag to hand.
What kind of bag should you use?
You should use something that is waterproof and easy to carry, dry bags are ideal as they are lightweight and can be dragged through water.
Where should you keep your emergency grab bag?
Store your bag upstairs if possible and don't forget to note its location on your flood plan.
REMEMBER to check your flood kit regularly to ensure that food and water supplies are in date and that batteries etc still work.
