Practice case study

Applying Climate Just in Salford and Trafford

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) serves around 2.8 million people from 41 fire stations. The Service has a support role in tackling flood events (both through pumping water and rescuing people) and in providing safety advice. GMFRS attended a Climate Just training course in December 2015 to explore how the tool might be able to help target safety advice to vulnerable people. JRF and Climate UK went on to work with GMFRS during 2016 to apply Climate Just data and insights to this issue.  A key part of this was the analysis and quantifying of the exposure and vulnerability to flooding of Trafford and Salford, two boroughs which GMFRS was investigating to pilot some preparatory flood risk mitigation activity.
