star this property answer text <p>A statutory duty for firefighters to respond to flooding is unlikely to make a significant difference to the Fire and Rescue Services which already provide effective response to flooding incidents. This has been demonstrated through the fantastic response of Fire and Rescue Services to a range of incidents in 2019 including the Wainfleet and Yorkshire floods and the Toddbrook Reservoir incident.</p><p>Fire and Rescue Authorities already have the power to respond to all kinds of emergencies for which they do not have a specific statutory duty, including flooding, under the Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004.</p><p>Furthermore, the Government provides the Fire and Rescue Service with additional resource to tackle flooding via the provision of High-Volume Pumps and Water Rescue Assets.</p> more like this
