Planning for Tomorrow's Floods

Minimize injuries and reduce damage

Preparing a good plan that covers the steps you should take before, during, and after a flood can minimize injuries and reduce damage to your facility. Anticipating a flood allows you to:

  • Protect your employees’ health and lives
  • Have the proper insurance
  • Make sure your business can recover from a flood
  • Take the proper flood warning action steps
  • Take further steps in the event of a flood
  • Buy the items necessary to combat the flood during the emergency
  • Protect your neighbors and other surrounding areas from contaminating their soil or property

Without a flood emergency plan, you may waste time, not be able to get needed resources, and be less likely to make the best decisions. The Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) provides useful information during all phases of floods, including planning.See EDEN's ReadyBusiness learning lesson for additional information.
