Preparation

Advantages

  • The impact of flooding is reduced
  • Buildings are less damaged and people know what to do when a flood happens
  • People are also less likely to worry about the threat of floods if they're prepared

Disadvantages

  • Preparation doesn't guarantee safety from a flood
  • It could give people a false sense of security
  • It's expensive to modify homes and businesses

Evaluation

Buildings are modified to reduce the amount of damage a flood could cause. People make plans for what to do in a flood - they keep important documents and items like torches and blankets in a handy place
