Herefordshire Tactical Coordinating Group flooding webinar

The Herefordshire multi-agency Tactical Coordinating Group (TCG) have responded to a number of flooding events over the years. They felt it would be beneficial for the TCG to provide local parish councils with some pre-flood event advice to supplement advice that is widely promoted elsewhere.

A Microsoft Teams webinar was held on 12 August 2021 and included presentations from Herefordshire Police, the Environment Agency, Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, and Herefordshire Council.
