Don't get caught in a flood
Flood water can result in damage to homes and property. It can be dangerous, and pose a threat to drivers and anyone else who finds themselves caught outdoors in a flood.
Being aware of where a flood is present, or where it’s likely to occur, will help you minimise the risk to you, your family and your property.
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency’s Floodline service provides flood warnings and live flooding information. Sign up and you can get emails and text messages about the risk of flooding in the area where you live, work or travel through.
Live flood information
Listen to the local radio station Central FM 103.1 FM for local, up-to-date information.

If you need advice or information about protecting your home from flood, or recovering from a flood, get in touch with the Scottish Flood Forum. This Scottish charity supports individuals and communities in flood-risk areas.

How we’re tackling flooding
We’ve commissioned research into the viability of four river flood protection schemes in vulnerable locations in the council area. These are in Aberfoyle, Bridge of Allan, Callander and Stirling. Three of these schemes have been nationally prioritised for flood risk reduction.
