  • Sign up to the SEPA floodline service at www.floodlinescotland.org.uk / 0345 988 1188
  • Prepare an emergency flood kit.
  • Obtain floodgates, airbrick covers etc to protect your property. Scottish Flood Forum can give advice and it might be possile to organise bulk purchases to bring down the cost.
