Abstract:This paper details research carried out in England and Wales, France and the Netherlands to produce a framework to assist in improving emergency plans for floods. The research comprised an assessment of the effectiveness of current flood emergency plans, an evaluation of the use of tools available to flood risk managers to inform these plans and the development of a framework with which emergency plans can be developed or improved. The framework developed under the ERA-NET CRUE project, Flood Incident Management a Framework for Improvement (FIM FRAME), was tested via a number of workshops and case studies carried out over an 18 month period. The framework was applied to flood emergency plans for the city of Sheffield in the UK, the city of Dordrecht in the Netherlands and two towns in the Rhone Basin in France. The resulting framework is relatively simple to apply without specific training, can be applied independently anywhere and by any flood emergency management team and is generic in that it can be adapted by the user for their specific purpose. It is recommended that the framework developed as part of this work is used internationally to assist with the development and improvement of emergency plans for disasters worldwide.
