Flood Education

Much information about flooding and flood hazards as well as the benefits of mitigation from the flood hazard can be found through a variety of stormwater and coastal resources. One such resource is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Digital Coast website.

Information about NAI (no adverse impact) can be accessed by visiting www.floods.org or contact the Association of State Floodplain Managers. NAI is a floodplain management technique which sets goals to reduce damage from floods.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has a variety of online independent study courses which can be accessed online. This includes FEMA’s online Elevation Certificate training, EC Made Easy.  FEMA and the American Red Cross produced this brochure to help victims figure out the first step after a flood.
