Several flood hazards are ranked as VERY HIGH on the North Wales Community Risk Register. Extending the remit of DangerPoint to incorporate the subject of flooding is a logical step to educate members of North Wales communities about flooding.
The intended difference that the new flood exhibit will have on our visitors is:
- Children are more aware of the flood risk in North Wales
- Children are more aware of the dangers that floods pose to their safety and how to behave responsibly around floodwaters
- Children are more aware of the steps that can be taken to minimise the impact of a flood in the domestic setting such as, protecting doorways, having a Home Emergency Plan, the benefits of having an emergency Grab Bag, how to move valuable items upstairs etc
- In turn, these messages will reach parents who have the ability to take ownership of the hazards that they face and introduce mitigation measures as outlined above
