Customers on the O2 network who live in areas at risk of flooding will receive an automated text message informing them that they have been signed up for free flood warnings. This means O2 mobile customers in our community will receive relevant flood warning and severe flood warning messages for their billing address. They begin rolling this service out on 5 December 2017.
Being registered for flood warnings can give people advance notice of flooding and some crucial time to prepare. The text message they receive will read: "Hello from the Environment Agency. You live in an area at risk of flooding. We will either call or text this number to let you know if there's a flood warning in your area. This service is free. More information bit.ly/2iKHLyJ. To opt out text REMOVE to 60006." More »
Throughout December the Environment Agency will be registering around 375,000 people across England on the O2 mobile network to the EA flood warning service. They have been automatically adding those who live in flood risk areas to the flood warning service since 2010, beginning with BT landlines and then moving to provide warnings to mobile phones in 2014, with the EE network. They are also working with Three and Vodafone to extend their direct warning service to their customers over the next few months.
Those who are not on the O2 network can still receive free flood warnings by visiting https://floodsdestroy.campaign.gov.uk/ to check if their home is at risk of flooding and to sign-up.
The EA are aware this may generate enquiries from the public via Emergency Volunteers/Flood Wardens so please feel free to share this information and suitably with any other interested colleagues or partner organisations. » Less
