Floodplain Session at OEP Planning & Zoning Conference on May 11, 2013
NH Floodplain Management Program staff will be presenting a session called "Promoting Floodplain Management: What Your Community Can Do" at the OEP Planning and Zoning Conference that will be held on May 11, 2013 at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester. Online registration opens March 21, 2013 on OEP's website.
Learn how your community can better protect its floodplain areas and provide long-term flood risk reduction. This session will highlight various higher standards that small or large communities can implement that go beyond the National Flood Insurance Program minimum requirements, which can then result in reduced flood damages and flood insurance premiums. Also, learn what other New Hampshire communities are already doing to reduce their flood risks and the tools and resources that are available to help your community.
Floodplain Learning On Demand - an education module for anyone with an interest in learning more about New Hampshire's floodplain maps, regulations or the National Flood Insurance Program.
Floodplain Management and Emergency Management Courses - offered by FEMA at the Emergency Management Institute in Emmitsburg, Maryland. All courses are free to State and Local personnel, including a reimbursement for your travel.
Some courses that are offered included E273 "Managing Floodplain Development Through the NFIP", E278 "Community Rating System", and E194 "Advanced Floodplain Management Concepts."
If you are interested in taking a course, please contact OEP's Floodplain Management Coordinator.
