Flood Team Communications Officer needed

The new retained flood team for Alyth (AFT), whose members will serve as trained volunteers in an actual flood, needs a dedicated Communications Officer – could it be you?

The Flood Team works with advice and support from Scottish Flood Forum and funding from the National Lottery Community Fund. They will be trained to operate independently when required during a flood, similar to Alyth’s Fire Team during a fire, collaborating with ACSG, ADT and others on day-to-day issues at other times.

The Comms Officer will have particular responsibility for creating clear messaging for emergency and non-emergency communication with the general public, as well as maintaining up-to-the-minute communication with the Flood Team and other organisations and groups while a flood is in progress.
