Borough Council will be at Hunstanton, Heacham and Snettisham from 8:30am to 12:30pm to test the way they issue their alerts.

Alan Daniels, Operations Team Leader for the Environment Agency, said: “We have a duty to

exercise our procedures regularly to ensure that we are as prepared as possible should a real

emergency occur. We must ensure our teams are confident in their roles and that all equipment is fully operational and ready for action.”

The tests are part of a week long series of events called Norfolk Prepared Week.
