Be prepared

Northamptonshire County Council is the lead local authority with overall responsibility for flood risk management in the county. All enquiries relating to flooding and flood risk should be reported to them. For more information see their flood toolkit website.

If you believe anyone is at risk take immediate action and contact the emergency services (police/fire/ambulance) on 999.


We do not provide sandbags. Your Parish Council may be able to provide sandbags as some do hold stocks for local residents. Distribution of sandbags is the responsibility of Northamptonshire County Council.

For sandbags to provide their full benefit, it is vital they are used correctly. See the following for more information

Households should retain sandbags for future use whilst there is still some element of risk.
