The more information and knowledge you acquire and share the more credibility and momentum you gain in your community on the subject of Disaster Preparedness.Thus, more folks will seek you out as an authority on the subject. As this begins to happen (and being the marketer, promoter and entrepreneur that your are you've already let them know what you do and given them your contact information) folks will seek you out for more information. Who do you think they will turn to when it's time to list their home, apply for a loan, get an appraisal, a home inspection, buy an insurance policy or, if you live in a Manufactured Home, need a foundation inspection or installation or an engineered certifacation or affidavit of affixture?

Critics Say Flood Maps Aren't Right
The Federal Emergency Management Agency began updating flood maps in 2004. So far, FEMA has spent about $2 million a year to complete the projects, but the agency isn’t done yet.

Meanwhile, critics in several states are complaining that the new maps are inaccurate and arbitrary. FEMA says it welcomes criticism of the new maps and is willing to make changes if there is scientific evidence available that the changes are wrong.

"What we're looking for is evidence, a study or survey that would provide more detailed information that can be incorporated," says Josh deBerge, a FEMA spokesman based in Kansas City, Mo.

There is usually a comment period during the 18 months between a map update and the date it takes affect. During that time, community meetings will be held. FEMA urges those with criticisms to take advantage of this window of opportunity.

I think it's kind of funny that we even get flood maps when the home is 1,800 feet above sea level.
