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 https://www.floodtoolkit.com/emergency/help/ page for more details on what to do.
