In the event of significant flooding in Limerick city or county, Limerick City and County Council will invoke its Plan for the Management of a Major Emergency.
The Council will liaise with all agencies and utilise all local and national media agencies available to it to make the public aware of events and updated information where available.
In addition, the Office of Public Works has set up two websites to deal with flooding matters.
- Flooding - Plan, Prepare, Protect - Information in relation to areas of the country that may be prone to flooding.
- National Flood Hazard Mapping - Practical information in relation to the dangers of flooding and the measures that can be taken to minimise the damage caused by such flooding.
These websites and other information can also be accessed through the Office of Public Works website.
