About the training
This session is designed for volunteers looking to develop their community’s resilience to emergencies such as flooding, snow, other severe weather events or utilities failures.
It is an opportunity to learn about what community resilience means and what it could look like, find out about the support on offer through Community Impact Bucks, understanding the training materials, and develop an action plan.
What you will learn in the training session:-

• Help everyone at risk respond quickly when flooding happens
• Decide which practical actions to take, before, during and after a flood
