NFIP Resources to Help Residents Prepare for Hurricane Season

by | Jun 17, 2020 | What's New

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and its National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) are encouraging residents in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas to purchase a flood insurance policy ahead of hurricane season.  We want to alert you of this effort and invite you to help spread the word about the vital protection and peace of mind flood insurance offers in the in the event of flood damage.

You can help your community’s residents prepare for hurricane season by following these four easy steps:

  • Encourage members of your community to reach out to their local agent to purchase a flood insurance policy before peak hurricane season
  • Share NFIP materials including resources, brochures, posters, flyers, and videos on your website, via e-mail, and through your network’s newsletter or listserv
  • Use our sample media content to post on platforms such as Twitter and Facebook
  • Embed the NFIP Cost of Flooding Tool and other engaging materials such as Survivor Stories to your website
