Event A CIWEM-CMS Conference: "Flooding: Emergency Response and Planning"

Continuing extreme events including foot deep hail stones and the flash flooding of the Ottery St Mary area, and the September South Wales floods which claimed 4 people’s lives are ongoing reminders of the issues
surrounding extreme flooding events.

The Government’s Action Plan and its plans including the Flooding and Water Bill provide a once in a decade chance to ensure that systems are in place to cope with these continuing events.

The aim of this conference is to explore and test how well the lessons from the summer floods of 2007 are being applied to emergency response and planning. The conference will look at the change and measures required in both action planning and National Flood Framework to embed the lessons into routine delivery.
