                 CORPORATE SEVERE WEATHER PLAN


1. Objectives of the Plan

The objectives of the Corporate Severe Weather Plan are;

   i.     To ensure activation at the appropriate level within the Council at
          the initial stages of severe weather incidents.

   ii.    To develop the council strategy for dealing with a severe weather
          incident.

   iii.   To ensure co-ordinated management of any severe weather
          incident.

   iv.    To ensure a co-ordinated approach with partners, where required,
          during a severe weather incident.

   v.     To provide Departmental Flood Teams with a detailed list of actions
          to cover the activation and initial period following notification of
          severe weather.

The Plan provides a framework for the activation, allocation and deployment
of Council resources in the event of severe weather. The plan is based upon
the South West London Local Resilience Forum Community Risk Register
and covers those areas identified in the severe weather section.

The types of severe weather and flooding conditions that the UK Government
uses for contingency planning purposes are severe storms and gales,
persistent low temperatures and heavy snow, heat waves, and major flooding
(coastal, tidal and fluvial at local and national scales).

South West Community Risk Register

The table below shows an extract of the specific severe weather risks which
are assessed as part of the national risk assessment framework. The
framework applies locally, regionally, in the devolved administrations and at
the UK level. Details of the framework and risk assessment methodology can
be found in the Councils Emergency Planning website.

                            disruption to traffic for 1-3 days, impact on access
                            to agricultural land and impact to infrastructure e.g.

                            stations would be closed. Most waterways would
                            be closed to traffic because of strong currents and

Borough Risk Assessment

Merton covers an area of 3796 Hectares (37.96 sq km) and is intersected by
the Beverley Brook and the River Wandle, both of which have extensive flood
plains, which have the potential to cut off parts of the borough. The Beverley
Brook flood plain covers an area of 2.642sq km and the River Wandle flood
plain covers 2.510sq km, 13.73% of the borough.

A number of major A roads bisect the borough being the A3, A217, A236, A
218, A238, A239, A 298 and the A24. The A238 High Street Colliers Wood is
particularly vulnerable to flash flooding as is the A3 Beverley Way /A298
Bushey Road intersection at Shannon’s Corner and West Barnes Lane.

Major transport disruption would seriously affect the council’s ability to deliver
services around the borough and also impact of traffic entering the borough
from neighbouring areas. This would also have an effect on emergency
services and their ability to respond.

There are several areas for concern within the flood plains (a full list is at the
back of this plan). The electricity sub station at Copper Mill Lane, Colliers
Wood underground station, the LFB Fire station at New Malden, Raynes Park
station and Motspur Park station are all in the flood plains.

A number of Merton’s schools are also within the flood plains and the
Beverley Brook has the potential to cut off the Civic Amenity site and
Transport section from the main part of the borough. Two centre for adults
with learning disabilities could also potentially be cut off and have their
services affected.


Response

Depending on the type, severity and lead-in time of the weather, the response
may be treated as a major incident when the Council would invoke the
provisions of the Emergency Plan. The content of the Civil Contingencies Act
2004, requires Category 1 responders (this category includes Local
Authorities), to compile Plans to provide assistance for responding to
emergency situations. This plan forms a part of this response and as such is
a subsidory plan of the Council Major Emergency Plan.

In the event of invocation of the Corporate Severe Weather Plan, the Council
will seek to:

   1.     Identify those areas most likely to be affected.

   2.     Implement actions as identified in the departmental plans

   3.     Give priority to vulnerable areas and people.

Plan.doc
   4.      Work closely with partner organisations in our response to the
           incident.

   5.      Provide full information at the earliest opportunity to those likely to
           be affected by the disruption, including residents of the Borough,
           staff and Members of the Council, other agencies and the media.


2. Activation of the Plan

Warnings and preparatory action

Warnings are received by email in the Emergency planning office from the
Met Office, for excessive rainfall and other severe weather conditions, from
the Environment Agency, for river level concerns and from the Primary Care
Trust, during the Heat wave season (June to September) for excessive
temperatures. These notifications are automatically forwarded to nominated
officers in each department.

Outside normal office hours these messages will be received via fax by
MASCOT and verbally forwarded on to the Environment and Regeneration
Duty District Officer (with the exception of the Heat wave/High temperature
notification).

Actions

In the event of receipt of a warning from any of the agencies, emergency
planning will make an assessment of the alert / warning to determine whether
further action is required. Initial further actions may consist of:

   1.     A follow-up call with the issuing agency

   2.     A follow-up email either from the issuing agency or emergency
          planning

   3.     Telephone discussion with senior officers to agree further
          actions/monitoring

   4.     Activation of Departmental Severe weather plans

   5.     Setting up of a Severe Weather Management Team.

Severe Weather Management Team

A severe weather management team will be led by a director and will have
representation from each department, press and emergency planning, in
order to develop the council strategy for dealing with the potential incident.
Departmental representatives will be fully briefed by their departments or may
be accompanied by section officers where a department has a large number
of areas of responsibility. Appropriate officers will be nominated depending
sarah chittock                     Page 5 of 27                        09/07/2008
C:\Documents and Settings\gavin compton\Desktop\Corporate Severe Weather
Plan.doc
on the type of weather or predicted inpact. Individual departments will be
responsible for activating their own severe weather plans for delivering their
areas of responsibility as detailed in the roles and responsibilities section.


Communications

Emergency Planning (Corporate Safety & Risk) will ensure that all
departments and CMT are aware that a warning has been issued which is
considered to be of concern to the Council and the actions being taken.

If the decision is taken to activate the severe weather plan at a corporate level
then the lead director will ensure that a severe weather management team
meets as soon as possible to agree strategy and communications.

The lead director will be responsible for agreeing statement to press and
briefings to councillors and MPs.

Alert Types and Levels

Met Office
National Severe Weather Warning Service giving notice to the civil emergency
authorities of periods of Severe gales, Heavy rain, Heavy snow and icy roads,
Thunderstorms and lightning, Heat and Sun and Dense fog.

Early warnings

An early warning of severe weather will normally be issued up to several days
in advance whenever the overall risk of widespread disruption in any UK
region is 60% or greater. All other areas with a 20% or greater risk will also be
shown.

Flash warnings

Flash warnings of severe weather are issued when confidence of an event
reaching specified criteria* is above 80%, and should give a minimum of two
hours notice. Warnings are issued for every affected county or unitary
authority.

Environment Agency

Flood Warning Service

The Environment Agency’s Flood Warning service aims to reduce risk to life,
distress to people and damage to property caused by flooding by providing
accurate, timely flood warnings. To provide this service in an area it must be
technically feasible and the costs against the benefits must be justified.

The service is provided to residents within the floodplains of rivers, estuaries
and coasts in England and Wales; to the media and partner organisations.
Where the water levels in rivers rise rapidly due to heavy rain or melting snow,
there may not be enough time to issue specific warnings, In these cases, a
general warning will be issued to a large geographical area.


Flood Warning Codes

“Flood Warning Codes” is the name given to the four warning types that the
Environment Agency use for warning the public, media and partner
organisations of impending flooding. The Flood Warning Code definitions are
based on the overall impact of flooding within an area and relate to a Flood
Warning Area (or community) as a whole. They do not relate to the personal
impact on individual members of the public. These warning types are not
issued as a sequence of messages. They are used, as appropriate, to
indicate the impact of flooding in a given area.

Flood Watch


Flooding of low-lying land and roads is expected. Be aware, be prepared,
watch out.

   •   Watch water levels
   •   Stay tuned to local radio or TV
   •   Ring Floodline on 0845 988 1188
   •   Make sure you have what you need to put your flood plan in action
   •   Alert your neighbours, particularly the elderly
   •   Check pets and livestock
   •   Reconsider travel plans


Flood Warning



Flooding of homes and businesses is expected. Act now!

As with Flood Watch plus

Plan.doc
   •   Move pets, vehicles, food, valuables and other items to safety
   •   Put sandbags or floodboards in place
   •   Prepare to turn off gas and electricity
   •   Be prepared to evacuate your home
   •   Protect yourself, your family and others that need your help


Severe Flood Warning



Severe flooding is expected. There is extreme danger to life and property.
Act now!

As with Flood Warning plus

   •   Be prepapred tp lose power supplies – gas, electricity, water,
       telephone
   •   Try to keep calm, and to reassure others, especially children
   •   Co-operate with emergency services and local authoritites
   •   You may be evacuated


All Clear



Flood Watches and Warnings are no longer in force for this area.

   •   Flood water levels receding
   •   Check all is safe to return
   •   Seek advice

Coverage of Flood Warning Codes

There are many different sources and types of flood risk and flooding
including river, coastal, estuarial, sewer, surface water, overland flow, burst
water mains, etc.
The Environment Agency do not and cannot currently provide a Flood
Warning Service for flooding from sewers, road drainage, overland flow from
heavy rain, or blockages. The codes only apply to flooding from rivers and the
sea.

Plan.doc
Early Warning Notification

An e-mail may be sent to Professional Partners if the Environment Agency are
confident that some degree of flooding is likely to occur. This is based upon
predicted rainfall totals from the Met Office and current catchment conditions.

The Early Warning Notification e-mail will only be sent Monday to Friday
during office hours, and prior to the issue of any watches or warnings. The e-
mail is designed to advise the recipient to keep an eye on the situation and be
prepared, and is based on best available information at the time and it may
change. Recipients have agreed to use the information for emergency
response only. Recipients of the Early Warning Notification e-mail at Merton
Borough Council are:
Jackie Bradnick
Steve Cooper
Elaine Richards
Kevin McCullagh
Ep Weather

Upon receipt of an early warning notification the recipients will initially assess
the situation and if necessary discuss whether the Severe Weather plan
needs to be activated and department put on standby or whether
departmental plans can cope with the predicted flooding.

Thunderstorm Action Plan

Due to the fast reacting nature of the South London Rivers Flood Watches
may be issued based on Heavy Rainfall Warnings that the Environment
Agency receive from the Met Office before the start of the main rainfall event.
The aim of this is to give extra time for partner organisations to prepare (eg
ensure drains and/or trash screens are clear etc).

   •   Flood Watches will only be issued in this manner if the Flood Warning
       Duty Officer is confident that the quantity of rainfall forecast to fall
       across the South London area will exceed predefined thresholds set by
       the Environment Agency.

National Health Service

A Heat-Health Watch system operates in England and Wales from 1 June to
15 September each year.

The Heat-Health Watch system comprises four levels of response based upon
threshold maximum daytime and minimum night-time temperatures. These
thresholds vary by region, but an average threshold temperature is 30 °C by
day and 15 °C overnight.

Heatwave threshold values:                     Heat-Health Watch regions:

 South West England        30        15
 Wales                     30        15

These temperatures could have significant
effect on health if reached on at least two
consecutive days and the intervening night.
What do the different levels mean?

Level 1 - Summer preparedness and long-term planning. This is the
minimum state of vigilance during the summer. During this time social and
healthcare services will ensure that all awareness and background
preparedness work is ongoing. The majority of the time the risk of a heatwave
will be less than 50%. However, when the risk exceeds 50% this will be
indicated by
'Level 1 - Summer preparedness - Increased risk'.

     Advice for level 1:
     If you are worried about what to do, either for yourself or somebody
          k      h       thi k i ht b t i k         t t NHS Di t t

Plan.doc
    you know who you think might be at risk, contact NHS Direct at
    www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk or on 0845 4647.

Level 2 - Alert and readiness — triggered as soon as the risk is 80% or
above for threshold temperatures being reached in one or more regions on at
least two consecutive days and the intervening night. This is an important
stage for social and healthcare services who will be working to ensure
readiness and swift action to reduce harm from a potential heatwave.

    Advice for level 2:
    Heatwaves can be dangerous, especially for the very young, very
    old or those with chronic diseases.
    Advice on how to reduce the risk, either for yourself or somebody
    you know, can be obtained from NHS Direct at
    www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk or on 0845 4647, or from your local
    pharmacist.

Level 3 - Heatwave action — triggered as soon as the Met Office confirms
threshold temperatures will be reached in one or more regions. This stage
requires social and healthcare services to target specific actions at high-risk
groups.

Level 4 - Emergency — reached when a heatwave is so severe and/or
prolonged that its effects extend outside the health and social care system. At
this level, illness and death may occur among the fit and healthy, and not just
in high-risk groups.

    Advice for level 3 or 4:
    Stay out of the sun. Keep your home as cool as possible — shutting
    windows during the day may help. Open them when it is cooler at
    night. Keep drinking fluids. If there is anyone you know who might be
    at special risk, for example an older person living on their own, make
    sure they know what to do.
    Advice on how to reduce the risk, either for yourself or somebody
    you know, can be obtained from NHS Direct at
    www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk or on 0845 4647, or from your local
    pharmacist.
