NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM
Since standard homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flooding, it’s important to have protection from the floods associated with hurricanes, tropical storms, heavy rains and other conditions that impact the U.S. In 1968, Congress created the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to help provide a means for property owners to financially protect themselves. The NFIP offers flood insurance to homeowners, renters, and business owners if their community participates in the NFIP. Participating communities agree to adopt and enforce ordinances that meet or exceed FEMA requirements to reduce the risk of flooding. Visit the FEMA website for more information.
The Ready Campaign of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, educating and empowering Americans to prepare for emergencies including natural disasters and manmade events. Please visit the Ready.gov website for more information.
