Stephen Gill, Partner and CEO of Flood Risk America & Flood Risk Canada, announced today that they would launch their new Flood Insurance Program at the Golf Course Industry Show in Orlando, Florida on February 8, 2017. Flood Risk America and it’s sister company, Flood Risk Canada will have a booth set up to explain the benefits and terms of conditions related to their new program.

A few months back, golf course owners and superintendents contacted Stephen Gill and told him of the problem they were facing regarding the inability to obtain flood insurance on their bunkers and greens, also they included the amount of business they were losing from flood damage on their courses. Stephen, along with his team of engineers and flood plain managers, began a thorough flood risk assessment on the various surrounding golf courses, pointing out the different areas of the courses that were at risk of flooding. “Not only can we do a flood risk assessment, but we can prevent flooding, water damage, and loss of business with our new products,” said Stephen Gill.

Flood Risk America & Flood Risk Canada service locations all across North America and solve flood problems in a multitude of industries. With one of their businesses located in sunny Florida, the golf industry for flood risk hits home for them.  “Our clients are the most important aspect of our job, when they contact us regarding a problem, we want to find them a solution, and in this we take great pride,” said Tiffany Largey, Partner and COO. 

Flood Risk America Helps Victims of Hurricane Mathew With FEMA Grant and Mitigation Money

Hurricane Matthew had devastating effects across the Atlantic coast. As a result of this catastrophic event, many businesses have been closed down due to flooding, not only leaving many people out of work, but also billions of dollars in reconstruction value. 

“We are deeply sorry for the losses that anyone has faced during Hurricane Matthew and we want to do whatever we can to help property/business owners understand their available options, preventing this from happening in the future,” said Stephen Gill, CEO of Flood Risk America. 

Currently, FEMA administers three programs that provide funding for eligible mitigation planning and projects that reduce disaster losses and protect life and property from future disaster damages. The three programs are the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Program, and the Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Program.

"We want to do whatever we can to help property/business owners understand their available options, preventing this from happening in the future,” Stephen Gill, CEO Flood Risk America 

Flood Risk America is ready to help with the FEMA Grant and Mitigation assistance. Flood Risk America will review your property’s coverage for free and determine which preventative measures will reduce potential damages and avoid any major flood loss. 

Flooding has caused significant damage and disruption, which will only increase in frequency and magnitude in the future. “Our job is to keep you and your property protected,” said Stephen Gill.
