National Flood Safety Awareness is Week March 12-16, 2012
Thursday, March 1, 2012

Flood Safety Awareness Week, sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and supported by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), was created to highlight the causes and consequences of flooding and educate communities on how to prepare for and protect their homes and businesses from the devastating effects of flooding.

Please join us in promoting Flood Safety Awareness Week to your customers, community members, colleagues and partners by using the tools and resources listed below from NOAA, FloodSmart, and FEMA:

  • Ready.gov/floodawareness: Visit Ready’s Flood Safety Awareness Week landing page to download Flood Safety Awareness Week Region-specific spring flooding fact sheets and other important preparedness tips you can share and post to your website.
  • FEMA.gov/widgets: A new Flood Safety Awareness Week embeddable widget is now available. We encourage you to include this on your website to promote the week. The FloodSmart seasonal widget is also available to post and share.
  • FloodSmart.gov: Visit FloodSmart.gov’s homepage to find important spring preparedness and flood insurance information and outreach tools.
  • Blog posts and social media promotion. FEMA will be blogging and spreading the word through their social media tools (Facebook and Twitter). Look for Spring flood-focused tips through FEMA’s social media channels. We encourage you to join them in using social media content. Draft posts and tweets are available upon request.
