Emergency Planning

The 2020 Crick Parish Council Community Emergency and Flood Plan has been compiled using the Community Emergency and Flood Plan Guidelines issued by Northamptonshire County Council in 2017. Both documents can be found below.

Flood Reporting

In an emergency when there is danger to life call 999 or 112

Although Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue's main responsibility is saving lives, they may also help pump out floodwater from your property depending on how busy they are.

During a flood incident you should focus on the safety of yourself and others and make sure to stay out of floodwater. Go to page for more details on what to do.

For non-emergencies the nature of the flooding depends who you report the flood to.
