Residents of Redcar & Cleveland have been invited to hear more about the flood protection measures available to them.
Taking place on Wednesday 28 January, the Flood Awareness Day will give residents and businesses an opportunity to look at the protection products available to them and how they would work.
The event, organised by the Cleveland Emergency Planning Unit and Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, will take place at Tuned In! in Redcar and is open for everyone who has been flooded in the past, is located in a risk area, or have an interest in finding out more about flooding.
As well as practical demonstrations of flood defences, there is also the opportunity for attendees to receive free advice on business continuity planning as well as community resilience should they get caught in a another flood like that which the region in 2013.
Cllr Helen McLuckie, cabinet member for highways, planning and transport, said: “This free event is a must attend for any businesses or residents of the Tees Valley who have been seriously affected by flooding in the past.
“Hopefully with the help and practical advice on offer, everyone will feel a reduced impact with any future disruption and will have a plan in place to deal with it.”
