1 Emergency Contingency Planning Flooding John Backley

2 2014 Floods Introduction: what happened - our role during the flooding what went well - and what we learnt looking forward – community resilience

3 3 Weather impacts one of, if not the most, exceptional periods of winter rainfall in at least 248 years flow rates on the River Thames remained exceptionally high for longer than in any previous flood episode - Met Office

4 4 Our role and response gathering information to assess needs – time on the ground, meeting residents, discussing concerns co-ordinated approach to deploying resources via OCC Emergency Operations Centre – OCC Highways, OFRS, TVP, OCC, SCS, military prioritising assistance to the most vulnerable

5 5 Sandbag provision good use of our contractor Biffa to deliver sandbags –door to door for the most vulnerable as a priority –using sandbag dumps to key locations, e.g. B&Q, Abbey House, Wantage, Grove, Steventon… some issues with un-managed sandbag dumps example of Abingdon TC coming to us to provide a solution to theft of sandbags from the B&Q dump

6 6 What went well & what we learnt importance of community level engagement in effective sandbag distribution where communities were organised and gave us reliable information it enabled us to respond more effectively to their needs – own needs assessment, SPOC, relationship self-reliant communities lightened our load and freed up resources to protect the most vulnerable

9 9 Looking forward – community resilience lessons apply to flooding AND snow, power cuts, loss of water supply etc. a community emergency plan can be simple: –a few key contacts –identifying risks in your village/parish –resources available locally e.g. place of safety –the help you might need and what you can do for yourselves community-emergency-plans

10 10 Supporting community resilience send us your plans –helps us to put together future budgets and plans for community resilience projects potential schemes –community managed sandbag stores works well in West Oxfordshire –tools for water course maintenance –sale of new eco sacks and door guards –snow clearing equipment –generators for running key facilities –personal resilience
