Flood Plan Components
Determine the right mitigation steps
Determine the steps you need to reduce the impact of a flood.
These mitigation steps can be:
- Physical actions, such as raising buildings above potential flood levels or moving out of highly flood-prone areas
- Personal or social actions, such as working to change land-use patterns to reduce flooding (by yourself and with your community)
- Financial actions, such as buying the appropriate flood insurance or building a contingency fund
All three actions can be effective and could be part of your pre-flood plan.
