According to NOAA officials, flooding is our country's number one natural disaster. You don't need to live in a mapped floodplain to need flood insurance. More than 20% of all flood insurance claims are filed in low- to moderate- flood-risk areas. Further, many eligible residents are unaware that they qualify for flood insurance and that affordable flood insurance is available.
Nation-wide, the average flood insurance policy costs around $570 a year. In low- to moderate-risk areas, Preferred Risk Policies can be as low as $129 a year. To learn more, visit http://www.FloodSmart.gov/ or call 1-800-427-2419.

Are You All Ready?
Last week I reported that the St. Louis Regional Disaster Preparedness Public Awareness Campaign is off and running! I trust you received your "correction" e-mail last Friday with the working link to the website. However, I'm also including it again this week because it is an important link to have. The All Ready? initiative is encouraging all residents of the St. Louis region to be prepared for any emergency by 1) making a plan, 2) having an emergency kit, and 3) being informed. For more information about the campaign, visit http://www.allreadystl.com .
The Department of Public Safety's City Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) provides free emergency alert service through Nixle (http://www.Nixle.com/) . When you register for the service, you will receive our informative and timely text messages on your cell phone and/or as e-mails on your computer. Visit the Nixle website and sign up for the free service today. If you have any comments about the service, please let me know.
Will you be having an event in your neighborhood that we can support? If so, either e-mail the information about it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Cathy Smentkowski at email@example.com .
And remember, if you see something in the neighborhood that just doesn't look right, REPORT IT!
