Emergency planners in Lincolnshire have said lessons will be learned from the recent flooding to hit the county.
The county faced unprecedented rainfall
About 50 people involved in dealing with the floods have held a debrief.
The emergency services, along with the Highway and Environment Agencies and local councils came together at emergency centre Silver Command.
But those in charge have identified problems getting information back from the scene of the problems to those co-ordinating the response.
The head of Operations Support for Lincolnshire police Chief Superintendent Mark Marsdon, said: "It was actually getting the information back from the ground to say which houses had been flooded, how deep is the water or how many people have been evacuated.
"Because obviously when you are in the command centre where there are no windows in it for a start off, you can't even tell if the sun is shining or it's raining."
He added that there will also be a more straightforward way of listing the most vulnerable properties and residents.
The county faced two flooding incidents in July and there has been criticism that flooding sirens were not sounded soon enough.
Mr Marsdon said that when to use the sirens was a tough decision.
"It is important to have some support on the ground when the alarm is raised because people hear it, come out of their houses not knowing what is happening, half expecting a wave to be coming down the river."
