Flood Safety Awareness Week

The National Weather Service has designated March 15-21, 2015 as Flood Safety Awareness Week.  More than half the states are planning events that recognize the need for flood safety outreach initiatives.  This website connects you to links for individual state flood response activities, including a clickable, interactive map, and other helpful resources on educational materials and available resources for flood awareness, prevention, and response.
EPA’s Water Security Division has developed a Guide and supporting training documents related to flood planning and mitigation and is hosting a series of webinars, each targeted toward a specific audience – state primacy agencies, water and wastewater utilities, assistance providers, and others.  ASDWA is working with WSD to present the state-focused web training event at the end of March.  More information will be sent to states as soon as the details are finalized.
