CEO Stephen Gill and COO, Tiffany Largey wanted to see how they could help more people around the Houston and Galveston area from becoming affected again from a devastating hurricane such as Harvey. They walked the streets of both Houston and Galveston, two large cities that have been greatly affected by floods and hurricanes reaching historical numbers.
Stephen, who is recognized as finding Flood Risk America, is a true advocate for flood protection and understands incredible devastation from working as a FEMA contractor during Hurricane Katrina. “As we entered the city, Stephen told me that when I left this place I will have been able to physically see what these people have gone through,” said Tiffany. This statement greatly affected her as she walked past the buildings that were still boarded up and the parking garages that had been flooded due to the intensity of rainfall that Houston had encountered.
Everyone in Texas welcomed these two Flood Gurus and helped them understand what they had gone through during the storm. While walking on the streets, they met a few people that spoke of their own story, how they were affected, and how some of their closest friends are still unable to return to their place of work. Stephen and Tiffany hit as many buildings that they could to teach about flood protection and ways to prevent floodwaters from entering, and how to properly save valuable/essential equipment. They met with some developers and contractors to find ways to improve the pre-construction development and how to properly flood proof a new structure.
