2012 CRS Award Nominations Deadline moved to March 9
Friday, March 2, 2012
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) has established an award to recognize individuals who have actively advanced the vision of the NFIP and the Community Rating System (CRS).
While all CRS participating communities are taking steps that improve their flood safety and resilience, certain communities stand out.

As in all serious endeavors, outstanding results do not just happen. They are due to the efforts of specific individuals, who through their knowledge, commitment and passion, have made their
communities safer. In an effort to recognize such individuals the NFIP is seeking nominations for the 2012 CRS Award for Excellence.

FEMA is asking organizations and their members to help identify worthy individuals. In particular FEMA is looking for nominees who have provided leadership in the area of alerting
residents to the dangers of flooding and promoting the purchase of flood insurance through the NFIP. Such an individual could be an insurance or real estate professional, local official,
floodplain manager, or other community leader.

The nominee should be:
  • Actively involved in a CRS community and knowledgeable about local flooding.
  • Active in promoting the use of flood insurance as a key tool in helping individuals prepare for the contingency of flood damage to their properties.
  • Active in encouraging community leaders to continually improve the community‚Äôs safety and resilience related to flooding and other disasters.
  • Recognizable as having noteworthy achievements in the area of alerting residents and businesses to potential flood dangers and promoting the purchase of flood insurance.
If you know of any such individuals, please help to recognize their achievements. Complete the attached form on the next page and mail, fax or email it as directed thereon. Please submit the
form no later than March 9, 2012. Individuals affiliated with the CRS Task Force and Employees of FEMA or Insurance Services office are not eligible. Additional information is
available at the following link https://www.fema.gov/library/viewRecord.do?id=3805.
