Help protect your home and recover after flooding: Free CIWEM training for homeowners
The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) is offering free training to members of the public affected by flooding caused by Storm Babet and Storm Ciarán. The training aims to help individuals reduce their risk of flooding and prepare for worst-case scenarios.
The Property Flood Resilience (PFR) training course is a non-technical course designed to be accessible to everyone. It explains what it is like to get flooded, what equipment and modifications can help keep water out of your home, and how to deal with insurers. The course has a particular focus on the ‘build back better’ scheme driven by reinsurer Flood Re, covering details of how to access a subsidy from insurers to repair your home in a way that makes it more resilient to future floods.
