Flood Mitigation

Flooding is the most common natural disaster. Floods have caused the death of more than 10,000 people since 1900.

What can I do today?

  • Learn the safest route from your home and business to high, safe ground, in case of evacuation
  • Have your Disaster Supply Kitupdated and easily accessible
  • Flood Safe Brochure
  • Buy flood insurance, most homeowner's policies will not cover flooding
  • Don't store valuables in the basement
