Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
The following report highlights the measures necessary to move towards a more consistent, reliable and improved flood warning service to be introduced across England and Wales with The Environment Agency taking the lead role in disseminating flood warning messages with effect from 1 September 1996. It covers the steps in the process which have been taken to build on the work f the National Flood Warning Procedures Group chaired by Roy Hathaway, former Head of Flood and Coastal Defence at MAFF who concluded there was confusion in the minds of the public on current roles and responsibilities and a low success rate in passing warnings through to the public who generally had a low level of awareness of flood risk. Resource difficulties for the main partners involved, Police, Local Authorities and NRA suggesting that methods and new technologies of dissemination needed to be explored.
