The website has been developed in partnership between Calderdale MBC, the Environment Agency, West Yorkshire Police, Calder Valley Community Support Group, West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, the local flood groups in the area and DEFRA. The site is interactive and includes ways to get involved in flood prevention activities and community groups, and offers special features such as the facility to check river levels and the flood alert status around the Borough.

Calderdale councillor Stephen Baines told The Hebden Bridge Times (28/05/15): ‘This is a fantastic resource for the local community, helping residents to be more flood resilient and also a first point of information on a wide range of flooding, travel and weather issues. The site has been designed to provide community information which will be regularly updated with up to the minute information on river levels, flood alerts, travel information and weather updates.’ There is an update about the #floodheroes campaign in the light of the tremendous work that has taken place since the Boxing Day 2015 flood here:
