Preparing an Emergency Flood Grab Bag

Why Should You Prepare an Emergency Flood Grab Bag

Flooding can occur at any time of day or night and often with very little warnings 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 should you include in your emergency grab bag?
And if you have time:
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.
