What is the Floodmobile?
The Floodmobile is an innovative mobile demonstration community outreach vehicle that has been designed to bring Property Flood Resilience to life.
The ‘flood house on wheels’ is packed with around 50 different property flood resilience measures, to show households and businesses what property-level adaptations can be introduced to a property to help reduce the impact future flooding can have.
The Floodmobile showcases a wide range of interventions, in one place. This includes door valves, non-return vales, wall membrane systems with accompanying sump pumps, flooring, wall coverings, alternative skirting boards, self-closing air bricks, periscope covers, recoverable kitchens and flood barriers and doors – including those suitable for listed buildings. The Floodmobile also showcases various types of waterproof plaster and insulation.
Who is behind the Floodmobile?
The Ox-Cam PFR Pathfinder Project has created the Floodmobile, which is one of three DEFRA PFR pathfinder projects across the country.
The aim of the Floodmobile is to help raise awareness in communities and businesses of flood risk and PFR measures, in order to increase uptake and improve resilience and recovery; and engage productively with the wider industry to facilitate the promotion and uptake of PFR measures.
The Floodmobile will be touring ‘at risk’ communities across the summer to talk face-to-face to homeowners and businesses, and allow them the opportunity to see and touch the measures, speak to our experts, ask questions, and watch various educational and information videos of PFR in action, in real life homes and businesses across the country.
