Flood Advisory Service in Dorset Association of Parish & Town Councils Magazine

Sarah Marriott, Managing Director of the Flood Advisory Service, wrote an article for DAPTC Magazine following the FAS’s recent roadshow in Weymouth, highlighting the importance of BSI Kitemark certified flood defence products and installation.

The Flood Advisory Service only recommends the use of flood defence products that have gained the ‘gold standard’ in the industry: the BSI Kitemark PAS 1188 certification. 

Sarah explains:  “It is vital that when individuals put their trust in a product it has been tried and tested, the Kitemark offers this peace of mind. When it comes to protecting a property from flooding, it’s absurd to think that until now there has been no recognised installation standard that property owners could look to and trust. Kitemark certified products are obviously a must but unless installed by qualified professionals can they really be trusted to perform if the worst happens?”

Sarah continues: “Under UK law, you can’t have a gas appliance fitted or maintained by anyone other than a Gas Safe engineer. Here at the Flood Advisory Service, we believe customers who are at risk of flooding also deserve the protection of a quality standard backed by a globally recognised body, the British Standards Institute. It’s clear from our discussions with residents as we’ve travelled around the country, there is still little if any understanding of how they can take control and best protect their properties.”
