FEMA Flood Damage Avoidance Checklist

I live on the beachThere are measures you can take to prevent your home from flood damage.  Obviously, the first thing is to check out your neighborhood’s flood elevation - call your local city or county offices and find out where you can have access to a local flood map.
Consider moving essential electrical equipment in  your home above the flood elevation, and get an electrician to connect receptacles to a Ground Fault interrupter.

FEMA’s checklist can be viewed by clicking here.

Obviously it’s also important to make sure you have enough flood insurance – and remember that flood insurance does not come into force for 30 days after the insured date.
