We’re all in the business of floods in some fashion, and that means being prepared for emergencies is just part of the package. But you don’t have to go it alone. Just as communities band together after a disaster, the ASFPM community is also there to help.
You may remember this newsletter story from last year: https://www.floods.org/ace-images/News_Views_Feb2018.pdf
Karen McHugh, ASFPM’s former secretary and Missouri’s state floodplain manager, wanted to get a Flood Damage Assessment Packet out to all affected communities during 2017 flooding events as fast as she could. And luckily, Paul Osman, Illinois’ state floodplain manager, had one ready to go, and she quickly converted it to “Missouri-style.”
Now the document has been updated, which is perfect timing for all states currently impacted by floods.
