The Ox-Cam PFR Pathfinder Project has released a new guide to help businesses consider flood risks and appropriate resilience measures.  ‘Flood Handbook for Your Business’ provides advice on both planning for and responding to flooding.

Flood Handbook for Your Business includes real-life examples of UK businesses that have already adapted their properties to keep livelihoods intact in the event of a flood.

While flooding is becoming an increasingly common occurrence, many businesses are unaware of the steps that can be taken to make their properties more resilient against future floods. The e-book, which has been co-authored by Matt Tandy, a Chartered Water and Environment Manager and flood resilience expert Mary Dhonau OBE, includes information on flood risk awareness, plus a template Flood Plan.
