One company prepares client’s for a flooding emergency using both flood protection services and custom-made products to match their flood risk evaluation.
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

The third step in preparation for a flooding emergency involves constructing flood barriers or shields around individual pieces of equipment or areas that contain essential equipment to prevent floodwaters from coming into contact with them.
For dry flood proofing to be effective, the barrier must be high enough to protect essential equipment from floodwater, strong enough to resist flood forces, and sealed well enough to control leakage and infiltration. Dry flood proofing measures must also satisfy applicable codes and standards.
There are many different types of dry flood proofing measures, one, which includes the use of a flood panel. There are many different types of flood panels on the market.

Flooding is devastating and is becoming a larger threat each year. With global warming, different weather patterns, and inaccuracy of flood maps, we must have a set plan in place to prepare for Mother Nature’s most common disaster. There are 5 steps that will help you to prepare. The first step begins with determining your flooding risk.
Your community officials or local emergency management offices are a great resource to learn about the history of flooding for your region. Ask whether your property is in the floodplain and if it is above or below the flood stage water level. Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) are what are used to determine your flood risk. If these have proved inaccurate in the past, or you feel the flood insurance is higher than expected for your given area, make sure to contact a highly trained company who specializes in flood prevention assessment and flood map modeling.
Flood risk assessments are available to show you historical flooding on your property and information about flooding in a 100-year storm. If you are building or own a commercial property, more in-depth assessments are available to show you modeling in a 1-5 hurricane and storm surge for each year, along with a detailed report assessing your flooding risks.
