 “Flood Ready” is about being prepared and knowing the risks associated with flooding. Have a plan in place in case of a storm, flood, or disaster! have emergency kits ready to go and get flood insurance to protect your home! Know the flood risks in your area by educating yourself and your family during ‘Flood Awareness Week.’ These vital steps can minimize personal and financial loss and help you become “Flood Ready.”
