An EAP and Flood Insurance

If you live or have a business in a hazard area below a HHP dam, an EAP can provide warning so that emergency management workers can help with evacuation and shelter in the event of a breach. But flood insurance can help with the recovery afterward. The National Flood Insurance Program is being reviewed and updated through legislation pending in the Congress. Meanwhile, there are information sources to review to determine whether you need flood insurance and how to get it.
