Grasshopper Versus an Ant

Be the Ant

Let Us Help
Protect You!

We are all familiar with Aesop’s fable of the ant and the grasshopper. The grasshopper spent the whole summer lying around in the shade, while the ant prepared for winter. The grasshopper had decided that there would be plenty of food left around for winter, as most winters he had found that food was not sparing. This particular winter happened to be worse than others, and the grasshopper was definitely not prepared, but the ant was. 

This is how Flood Risk America feels about hurricane season. Although it is winter, and we have cold weather and shoveling snow, instead of water on our mind, it’s best to prepare early, especially in coastal or flood prone areas. 2018 was a hard year for a large portion of the United States; FEMA had been backed up for months with the amount of flood claims and damage. Why not be proactive for the 2019 season?

Many claims are still being handled, but many people are still in the mindset of the grasshopper. Let Flood Risk America help you understand your options when it comes to flood protection and mitigation assistance. We tend to lean on the favor of the ant, helping our clients prepare before a loss occurs. With our 24/7 flood deployment team, durable, corrosion-resistant flood panels, American-made products, flood consulting services, and team of experienced flood mitigation professionals, we will guide you in the right direction to not only protect your property from flooding, but we will save you money on your flood insurance premiums and deductibles. 

It's Peak Hurricane Season, Are You Prepared?

Hurricane Season

With the formation of Hurricane Gordon and Hurricane Lane within the last week and rain falling hard on your Labor Day weekend, have you thought about the “what if” of hurricane season? With active numbers reaching in the peaks of September and October, it’s better to be safe and protected, than last minute shopping at your local hardware stores to ineffective methods of flood protection. Most people think about the bottles of water and canned goods that they need, but most do not talk about their flood safety plan or make sure that their existing flood protection methods have adequate seals and gaskets. 

At Flood Risk America, we want to make sure that you are protected. We offer flood vulnerability assessments to pre and post constructed buildings, create safety plans, and suggest the most effective flood protection needs for your residential home or commercial properties. We have a multitude of different flood protection products and services, and customize FRA flood panels to the size and thickness that best fits your individual requirements based on a flood risk assessment. By using our products and services, you not only become protected during a storm, but you have the chance to lower your flood insurance premiums and deductibles. 

We have a team of flood experts, architects, and engineers offering 24/7 assistance and customer service to best serve you.  Education is beyond important to us, so ask us about our flood mitigation-training program and online webinars.
