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 http://www.nws.noaa.gov/floodsafety/index.shtml 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.
