The Northamptonshire County Council are pleased to announce that the Northamptonshire County Council Flood Toolkit is now officially live and can be accessed through the following web address - www.floodtoolkit.com
The Flood Toolkit allows a user to: -
* Find out if they are at risk of flooding using the interactive Flood Risk Map.
* Discover who is responsible for flooding outside their home or on the roads and how to contact them.
* Learn how to protect their property from flood water through engaging images.
* Locate funding sources for flood related projects using the Funding Mechanism Tool.
* See how much rain has fallen in their local area through the Rain Gauge Widget.
* Educate children through the Flood Aware Schools Pack.
The Flood Toolkit is part of the wider Defra Pathfinder Project on community flood resilience that Northamptonshire County Council has been piloting over the past two years. If you are interested in the results of this project, please follow the link to the electronic Pathfinder Evaluation Report http://edition.pagesuite-professional.co.uk/launch.aspx?pbid=38a43c3c-b880-48ff-a04d-701cf5688ea9
We hope you find the Flood Toolkit useful, engaging and enjoyable!
