The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is partnering with the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and National Weather Service (NWS) to promote Flood Safety Awareness Week (March 15-19). Throughout the week, the NFIP will work with NOAA to remind Americans of their flood risk and ways they can safeguard their homes and assets, including purchasing a flood insurance policy.

A new interactive flood map is now available to help you better educate your customers about their individualized flood risks. This resource depicts how floods have impacted millions of Americans in recent years, and provides users with localized flood event data and damage statistics. Developed by the NFIP's FloodSmart Campaign, in partnership with NOAA, this interactive flood map will be promoted in conjunction with Flood Safety Awareness Week to offer visitors a more accurate picture of the causes and magnitude of flooding in their area.

Click here to access the map on the Flood Safety Awareness Week landing page. The site also provides resources for your customers to learn more about the financial costs of flooding, how to get a policy, and in the event that a flood occurs, how best to recover.

NFIP Agent Resources: Agents registered on Agents.FloodSmart.gov have access to various online marketing tools. Mail-on-Demand provides you with pre-built direct mail templates. The in-office posters help initiate conversations about flood insurance with current customers.
