Chiswick Life Boat Station - is one of four RNLI lifeboat stations on the Thames which became operational in 2002, following the inquiries into the sinking of the pleasure cruiser, The Marchioness. The lifeboat has a mix of full time and volunteer crew. It is the second busiest RNLI lifeboat station.

National Flood Forum website is an independent site set up by three people who were involved in flooding back in 2000 It started with funding from the Environment Agency and is focused on helping communities.

Certain parts of Chiswick near the river are subject to an extra risk of flooding particularly when there are exceptionally high tides on the Thames.

The figures below shows the dates and times at which an unusually high tide is expected. This is defined as a tide height of 6.9m or above.

Areas that may flood at these times include Chiswick Mall and the towpath at Strand on the Green. Some minor encroachment of the river on to the carriageway of Chiswick Mall may also occur during other high tides. The peak tides will occur a few minutes earlier at Chiswick Mall and a few minutes later at Strand on the Green than the times given below.
