Radio adverts created with flood advice

Public Health England has produced two radio adverts with health advice on cleaning up safely after flooding.

The two 30 second radio adverts contain messages on how people can stay safe and well when cleaning up. The adverts are being broadcast for two weeks on commercial radio stations in areas affected by the recent flooding and are also available to listen to on Audioboo.

Messages highlighted include the serious danger posed by carbon monoxide fumes from the indoor use of generators to dry out buildings.

Dr Paul Cosford, director for health protection and medical director of PHE, said: “Over the past few months PHE staff across our regions and centres have been working closely with local responders to ensure communities affected by the flooding have the information they need about how they can reduce risk of illness or harm.

“We want to continue to do as much as we can to ensure these messages are heard and these radio adverts and leaflets will help reach those in affected areas and provide essential advice about cleaning up safely, and avoiding hazards that can be caused by faulty gas or electrics and potential dangers from carbon monoxide poisoning.”
