Environment Agency launching Flood Action Campaign 29th November

Posted: 22/11/18

Flood Action Campaign starting on 29th November!

The Environment Agency are once again gearing up to launch their Flood Action Campaign to make sure people in communities know what to do in a flood, and to ensure that more people sign up to flood warnings – helping to keep them, their homes and their families safe.

This year, the campaign will launch on Thursday 29th November and the Environment Agency are encouraging people to support it on social media, with the focus being on young people aged 18 to 34, particularly renters and young families. By adding your voice to the campaign it helps the Environment Agency to really turn up the volume of their Flood Action Campaign and get out vital messages faster.

Here’s what you can do:

  • Record a video or take a photograph, sharing #JustOneThing you would save in a flood and why. It can be anything personal to you – perhaps a childhood toy, your child’s first drawing, designer shoes, your wedding outfit? Its up to you.
  • When the campaign goes live, post your video online and add text to ask your friends/followers what they would save in a flood and encourage them to post their own pictures on Instagram.
  • Tag in the Environment Agency’s North West Twitter account @EnvAgencyNW and use the hashtags #JustOneThing and #PrepareActSurvive. Make sure you link through to the what to do in a flood page on GOV.UK – this is a key part of helping people to know what to do in a flood and keeping them safe.

This will all help to get more people signed up for flood warnings and help to at least reduce one possible nightmare.
