Cleaning-up after Storm Desmond in Carlisle

Adler & Allan have had a busy day in Carlisle, helping businesses in the area clean up after Storm Desmond. We’ve been working at forecourts and retail outlets to check fuel tanks are safe, keeping water out and fuel in, to prevent stock losses and pollution.

Where possible, the clean-up operation has begun, pumping away water and sanitising equipment. But, with yet more rain predicted, work so far is just the tip of the ice berg. All of Adler & Allan’s flood response teams are now out at sites throughout the country helping to minimise the damage this flooding is causing to UK businesses.


Adler & Allan’s flood protection capabilities 

Flood response and clean-up:  Adler & Allan’s emergency response teams are on-hand 24/7 to clean-up flood water, preventing asset and environmental damage. Our expert teams can sanitise equipment, while limiting pollution to ground and watercourses.

Flood risk assessments: A flood risk assessment (FRA) will determine the potential risks of flooding to a site, with recommendations being given on how best to tackle the threat.

Flood defences: Following a flood risk assessment, we can advise appropriate flood defence measures. Flood defences available through Adler & Allan, include JBAR®, a newly patented modular flood defence system that prevents spills as well as mitigating against flood water.
