Flood Apex Program: Rethinking America's Costliest Disaster

The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate, at FEMA's request, created the Flood Apex Program. It brings together new and emerging technologies designed to increase communities' resilience to flood disasters and provide flood predictive analytic tools.

The key objectives of the program are to reduce fatalities and property losses from future flood events; increase community resilience to disruptions caused by flooding; and develop better investment strategies to prepare for, respond to, recover from and mitigate against flood hazards

Work under the program follows six activity tracks, each of which will contribute products toward improving flood resiliency and decision support over the four-year life of the program (2016-2020).

1. Reduce Flood Fatalities

2. Reduce Uninsured Losses

3. Improve Mitigation Investment Decisions

4. Enhance Community Resilience

5. Improve Management of Flood Support Data

6. Improve Predictive Flood Analytics

S&T recently released this video, which explains more about the Flood Apex Program. Visit this link for more information, or contact first.responder@hq.dhs.gov.
