Free event focusing on floods

The Lancashire IFE branch (part of the North Western branch) is running a lecture on the topic of ‘Looking at past floods on River Roeburn and the Lune’ in conjunction with The University of Central Lancashire and Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service.

Taking place from 13.30 on 16th January 2019 the event is aimed at those working within the fire sector and those studying fire or rescue related subjects. Speaker Rob Everett, a farmer, ecologist and Permaculture teacher, will cover topics including the effect of fires, grazing, drainage, rocks, trees and rainwater temperature on two different forms of flooding and flood damage. He will provide insight into the physics of water flow and circulation as well as consider the measures required to reduce effects within the future predictions for climate change.

Louisa Blundell from Lune Rivers Trust will also be speaking. Her remit is to focus on community engagement and project delivery and she has been responsible for leading multiple projects including Natural Flood Management interventions and wetland creation.
