Second series of FREE Flood Mitigation Workshops scheduled

FIRM wants to help you “Keep Your Home Above Water” with our second series of free flood mitigation workshops.  The focus of these workshops will be elevation of homes and buildings in order to reduce both flood risk and the ever-rising expense of flood insurance.  The workshops will also discuss “dry floodproofing” techniques which can help to prevent floodwaters from entering the structure.

Roderick Scott, of L&R Resources, LLC will present his award-winning public education program “Hazard Mitigation- Elevation 101.”  Local government floodplain managers and building department personnel will also be on hand to answer questions.

  • January 18, Marathon, Marathon Government Center, 2798 Overseas Hwy., MM 50

All workshops will be held from 5:30-7:30 pm in the Board of County Commissioners Chambers.  You can pre-register below or call the FIRM office at 305-294-3476.  The workshops are free, but registration is appreciated in order to provide ample meeting materials for all attendees.  If you attended the first series of workshops, bring your FIRM Property Binder for updates.
