Event title and description: Flooding and weather emergencies Masterclass

With winter storms and other extreme weather events throughout the year becoming more frequent as a result of climate change, councils and public services are increasingly dealing with the impacts on individual, communities, properties and infrastructure.

LGcomms has assembled the experience and the expertise of dealing well with recent flooding and extreme weather, alongside the practical help and advice you will need to help you deal with such an emergency.

Join us online for the latest LGcomms webinar in our 2024 series from 2pm to 3.30pm on Thursday 29 February, when we will be joined by colleagues from Nottinghamshire County Council, City of York Council, and Aberdeenshire Council for presentations, discussion and Q&A based on their first-hand experience.

Joining us for our February masterclass will be:

  • Luke Barrett and Jen Sheriston from Nottingham County Council, sharing insight and experience from severe flooding across the County as a consequence of Storm Henk in January
  • Debbie Manson from City of York Council on their flooding toolkit, and the dangers of public complacency in places frequently affected by floods
  • Sarah Rochester from Aberdeenshire Council, has been around crisis and emergency communications for most of her PR career, from helicopter crashes to Icelandic volcanoes, from storms to floods to power outages, from pandemics to the death of the Monarch on her local authority doorstep. Her presentation will draw out some of the key principles she has learned from all of these events and how you can apply many of those to emergencies of any kind.
