Situation #1
Community Leaders

Engaging community leaders
When changes in flood risk status occur, property owners have questions - and so will your community leadership. To assure a smooth transition, make certain that elected officials, community groups and other stakeholders are kept informed as the process moves forward. With this information, they will be prepared to answer questions about safety, new flood insurance requirements and any steps being taken to improve the levees.

Tools for local outreach
The materials in this section will help you inform other community leaders and answer common questions that will arise. You will also find resources that will help explain the flood insurance implications of levee and map changes.
