National Flood Safety Awareness Week

National Flood Safety Awareness Week
Posted on 03/16/2010

The Village encourages residents to prepare for the risks of flooding. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)will commemorate Flood Safety Awareness Week 2010 (March 15-19) by partnering with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) to raise awareness of flood risks throughout the Nation.

To help individuals better understand flood risks and steps that can be taken to protect lives and property, FEMA and NOAA have created an interactive "flood impact map" that features localized, searchable data about the scope and severity of flood events in recent years. The map is available at www.floodsmart.gov/noaa, and the web page also contains tips on what to do before, during and after a flood.
