*** PPE - call for action ***

PPE equipment

Wiltshire & Swindon LRF is working with fellow responders across the South West and are grateful to businesses and others for their support in providing essential PPE supplies. PPE continues to present a huge challenge, and a national request is being made of organisations or others able to help with making PPE such as visors and gowns for our frontline workers.

Flood Maps

Posted by LRF Manager

The maps show areas at risk from river, coastal, reservoir and surface water flooding.

In line with most other areas in the UK, flooding is one of the major risks in Wiltshire and Swindon. The Environment Agency is a key partner within the LRF. From December 2013, the new and updated flood maps were published on the Environment Agency website to help people find out if they live or work in an area at risk from flooding.
