3. Flood Wardens

Some people gain huge rewards in helping others and becoming a flood warden can be an extremely rewarding way to help.

Become a flood warden

A flood warden helps and prepares people in the local community that are at risk of flooding and they play an important role in the development and execution of a community flood plan. They also provide a vital link between a local community and those responsible for responding to a flood.
