14 November 2019 - Flood Alerts In Place Across Northern Lincolnshire and East Riding

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service are preparing assets and crews for another busy day of localised flooding. Locations are likely to be similar to last week, but up to date flood alerts can be found by clicking here.

Keep an eye on social media for updates throughout the day and into the evening, but please see below for some general advice:

  • Please consider whether a 999 call is really necessary and leave crews available for helping the most vulnerable
  • Priority will be given to life risk then risk to property
  • Is your call a genuine emergency? if not, might your local authority be able to help?
  • Dog walkers and joggers (and anyone on foot) - please stay away from drains and rivers following heavy rainfall
  • Drive to the conditions and be patient especially during rush hour. Some routes may be busy or even closed in the event of localised flooding.
  • Don’t drive through standing water – as well as the water damaging your car, there may be hazards under the water you can’t see
  • If you see a sign to say that the road is closed due to flooding, remember the sign is there for a reason.

Please note, the fire service may not always be able to help in the event of a flood. A fire crew will not automatically be sent. An officer will attend to assess the situation and if they feel the fire service can assist, they will call for a fire crew. The officer may not attend straight away though as all calls are prioritised.

The fire service can only help in certain situations. There has to be a certain level of water before we can pump water away, and we have to be able to pump it somewhere without it having a detrimental effect elsewhere.

Please be patient and help those most vulnerable in your community.    Stay safe.
