Flood Resources for Individuals and Businesses
National Flood Insurance Program: Even those not in a floodplain should consider supplemental flood insurance. Most insurance companies will not cover flooding if the water is coming from outside the home. Flood insurance is available through most homeowners and renters insurance agencies and the National Flood Insurance Program. Take steps to protect your home, family, and financial security throughout the year, and to take extra precautions when flooding is predicted in your area.
Individual: As in all disaster related activities, safety should always remain a top priority. The dangers of flooding do not stop after the waters have receded. Below is a list of links with helpful information for individual home clean-up and decontamination along with safety tips and guides. In the instance that you do not feel comfortable or safe for any reason when performing these tasks, consult a professional company.
Never attempt to work alone on any flood recovery tasks.
