Preparing a Flood Emergency Kit

Flooding can occur at any time of day or night and often with very little warning. If you live in a high flood risk area it pays to be as prepared as possible and that includes having an Emergency Flood Kit to hand.
What should you include in your emergency flood kit?
How to store your emergency flood kit?
Keep your emergency flood kit in a waterproof container, or a dry bag ideally stored upstairs if you are able to.
REMEMBER to check your flood kit regularly to ensure that food and water supplies are in date and that batteries etc still work.
