Tiverton Town Council has realised that an alternative sand bag service was necessary and will form part of the towns existing Winter Resilience programme.
The town council has already allocated fifteen sites in Tiverton where it stockpiles salt to treat pavements. These supply points are operated by community volunteers under the guidance of council wardens.
The new sandbag service will be integrated into a number of areas where surface and river flooding has been recorded and will operate initially from four sites.

TIVERTON IN BLOOM are asking the community to come together and paint the town with vibrant, warm and inviting colours this year.
The In Bloom committee, which is part of Tiverton Town Council, are looking for businesses and individuals to help by sponsoring a basket – whether it be the full amount or just a fraction towards the cost.
The first organisation to sign up for a hanging basket is the Hospiscare shop on Bampton Street.
Hospiscare Shop Assistant Manager Cllr Janet Smith said "Although the charity itself has not paid towards the cost of a basket, volunteers in the shop came together to buy one on behalf of the store".Read more: Tiverton In Bloom 2013
