Before the Disaster

CITIZEN CORPS - Over the past months America has witnessed a wellspring of selflessness and heroism. People in every corner of the country have asked, "What can I do?" and "How can I help?" Citizen Corps has been created to answer these questions.

BLUEPRINT FOR SAFETY - This program is designed to provide accurate, current and reliable information about disaster-safety building techniques and features to help families become better prepared for floods, hurricanes, wildfires and windstorms.

FLOOD INSURANCE - The National Flood Insurance Program, is a pre-disaster flood mitigation and insurance protection program designed to reduce the escalating cost of disasters. The National Flood Insurance Program makes federally backed flood insurance available to residents and business owners.
