Flooding can cost millions of dollars in damage, find out how you can protect yourself against nature’s most deadliest disaster.
A large commercial real estate owner had a Hotel on the water, paying $105,000 for flood insurance.
Flood Risk America provided a complimentaryVulnerability Assessment, demonstrating how flooding and storm surge would affect the hotel, as well as incorporating the investigation of historical flooding. Flood Risk America then confirmed, from the Vulnerability Assessment,how the hotel could avoid future flood losses.
FRA installed flood panels on the ground floor lobby to protect the elevators and lobby from avoiding a flood loss. FRA then went back to the insurance carrier and provided a customized flood mitigation plan for the Hotel. The insurance carrier then reduced the flood premium by $76,000.
o Cost of current annual flood premium: $105,000
o Current savings with flood mitigation plan: $76,000
o New current flood premium: $29,000

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. 2017 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. 2018 has been predicted to exceed what we felt was our worst year.
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.
Consequences of flooding on elevators and valuable assets can devastate a facility’s ability to function and can also cause loss of business and interruption to both the clients and owners. In various instances, many facilities could not function for long durations because essential equipment was placed in basements, sub-basements, or ground floor levels that flooded. In some cases, components of vital systems were elevated well above the floodwaters, while other elements such as transformers, transfer switches, fuel tanks, pumps, etc., were placed at lower levels, leaving them susceptible to flooding and the elevators and essential equipment in the control rooms and other places were then rendered inoperative.
Our vulnerability assessments provide information and recommendations to improve the functionality of critical facilities by preventing flood exposure to elevators and valuable assets. These assessments describe how essential equipment must be protected from flooding to allow a critical facility to perform its primary function during and after a flood event. Flood Risk America and Flood Risk Canada will help you identify vulnerabilities in essential facility systems and equipment using our comprehensive flood mitigation approach.
