Flood Awareness Week: Be Flood Smart!
Date Recorded: Wednesday, March 3, 2010
Presenters: Julie Hildreth, Ogilvy Public Relations Wordwide and Jacob Anderson, FEMA
Most Americans ignore the risks of flooding, assuming they aren’t in a flood zone. The reality is, floods are America’s #1 natural disaster and can happen anytime, anywhere. In fact, 90% of all natural disasters in the U.S. involve flooding.
Please join the FEMA Individual and Community Preparedness Division for our Community Preparedness Webinar Series on March 3rd, 2010, and hear FEMA subject matter experts provide an overview of FEMA's FloodSmart Program and Building Science Program, as we encourage communities to provide flood education and outreach during National Flood Awareness Week 2010: March 15-19th. National Flood Safety Awareness Week is intended to highlight some of the many ways floods can occur, the hazards associated with floods, and what you can do to save life and property. Learn more about how to engage your community in flood mitigation and preparedness.
