Today we had a great Flood Safety Awareness Week webinar with Carol Dunn, and she mentioned several great resources for flood preparedness that we wanted to share here:
- FEMA’s “Repairing your Flooded Home” Resources
- National Weather Service flood resources
- Floodproofing methods from LSU
- So you live behind a levee
- 2resilience.org’s Flood Preparedness Workbook (pdf)
- 2resilience.org’s GIS resources
- Fargo’s flood info center
- Mezzoman “Meet in the Middle”
And there’s also the Depiction Preparedness Add-on Pack, which Mike demoed at the end of the webinar, and which adds over 30 new elements to help create emergency plans, as well as new Quickstart data sources with information about past disasters.
You can also download video of the webinar. We have streaming video up now as well. (Note–Carol would like to clarify that, though she was described as a shelter manager, she was actually a shelter supervisor, which is different.)
Tomorrow morning I’ll be sending out the March edition of the Depiction newsletter–there’s going to be some good stuff in there about some webinars we’re doing this month, as well as some special discount opportunities we’re offering.
And if that’s not enough, the newsletter will also have our second Depiction Perspectives piece. This time around it’s an interview with Carol Dunn, Disaster Risk Communicator for the Emergency Preparedness Division of the city of Bellevue, Washington. You may know of Carol from the nice things she said about Depiction back when she worked at the Red Cross. Or, more likely, you know of her from her prolific tweeting on disasters, preparedness and emergency management.
The interview is really excellent–Carol has some great thoughts on the trends that Mike wrote about in the first edition–but if you want to read it, you’ll have to sign up for the Depiction Newsletter!
