Property Flood Resilience Workshop

May 07th 2021

Members of  your community are invited to our brand new virtual event: An introduction to Property Flood Resilience (PFR) workshop on Tuesday 6th July 10-11.30 am. We would be delighted to see as many Cornwall communities represented at this free event as possible. These workshops will feature a live demonstration, access to free helpful resources and much more! All details can be found in the flyer attached to this email and you can quickly register for this workshop by following this link

We would be extremely grateful if you could share this flyer and registration link via any social media pages/ email distribution lists within your Council or Town/Parish Council newsletters so as many members of you community can get access to this fantastic opportunity.

Property Flood Resilience (PFR), also referred to as Property Level Protection (PLP), is an important element of flood risk management. PFR includes measures that reduce the risk to people and property, enabling households and businesses to reduce the damage caused by floods and speed up recovery and reoccupation.

This workshop has been developed as part of the South West Property Flood Resilience (PFR) Pathfinder Project. As part of our workshops, we have designed a brand new PFR booklet which follows a similar design to our existing Community Volunteer training guides. You will receive a free hard copy of this new PFR booklet upon successful registration. Alternatively, we can provide you with a digital edition if you prefer.

If you would like to some more information on the project itself or wish to learn more about PFR you can visit this new BeFloodReady website.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Best wishes,

Molly
