Flood Forecasting and Alerting Systems

Flood Warning Systems

Early flood warnings save lives and allow time to protect property.

It’s impossible to completely eliminate flooding. Increasingly, the impact of damaging and extreme flood events is taking an ever-larger toll, particularly in developing countries and vulnerable communities.

Flash flooding can cause loss of life and destroy properties, however with the correct early flood warning systems and planning, we can significantly reduce the impact.

Watch this short introduction to our flood forecasting solution to find out more.

Predict when and where you need your response teams

Emergency services and other response teams can react quicker. Our real-time flood-forecasting system lets you track and understand where water will go, how fast it will move, and critically, where and when it could cause problems. Predicted flooding triggers automated warnings, giving you more time to plan your response.

Help communities to help themselves

Pre-planning, community involvement and innovative methods of reaching out to communities at risk: the most effective response to flooding can often be taken by local people themselves if they’re forewarned.

Easy to customise locally

We work with national and local emergency and planning teams, adapting our systems to fit your scenarios and focusing them on any local area. You can customise the automated warnings, monitoring key hot spots and setting warning levels.


  • Improved early warning saves lives and limits damage
  • Modular components reduce the cost for both site and city-scale deployments
  • Saves time – designed to integrate with previous investments in flood modelling technology
