Protecting Hampshire in the Floods - keeping safe and healthy

Friday, 14 February 2014

As flood warnings and alerts remain in place across the south of England, Hampshire County Council wants the county's residents in areas affected by flooding to take some simple steps to protect their health.

Executive Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health, Cllr Fairhurst, said: "While teams across the County Council are doing everything possible to help and support Hampshire residents during these difficult times, we are also working with Public Health England to ensure residents have the right information and advice to stay healthy."

This includes:

If a flood has been forecast pack a 'flood kit' in case you need to leave your home.


Cllr Fairhurst added: "We hope that by encouraging people to take these sensible precautions, we can minimise the risk of infection and injury. People with health concerns can obtain advice from the NHS Choices website, NHS 111 or speak to their local Pharmacy or GP. Adult Services are available on 01329 225390 if people are concerned about the health or safety of elderly or vulnerable neighbours and friends."

The latest information on flooding and public health advice is available on the County Council's website and via Public Health England.
