RAB to Deliver a Major Flood Incident Exercise for Scotland
May 29, 2014

Following the success of Exercise HIGHLAND STORM in 2012, the Resilience Team at RAB Consultants has secured Scotland's next major flood exercise - "Exercise NIMBUS".

Exercise NIMBUS will be delivered in October 2014 and will fully test SEPA's systems and processes from generation and issuing of the Flood Guidance Statement, Flood Alerts, Flood Warnings and Severe Flood Warnings, and to exercise their information sharing and co-operation with professional partners.

Ray Pickering, Head of Resilience at RAB, said "We are delighted to be working again with the flood response staff at SEPA.  The challenge of designing a simulated flooding scenario across parts of Scotland is one that we thoroughly enjoy and will reinforce our strong relationship with SEPA's highly skilled Flood Warning and Forecasting Team and their Resilience Team."
