Floods have caused a greater loss of life and property, and have devastated more families and communities in the United States than all other natural disasters combined. Enforcing local flood damage prevention ordinances and utilizing new digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMS) and associated data does not always protect property from flood damage. Communities look for other ways to better protect their residents and buildings from flood damage. Also, because of significant deficits to the National Flood Insurance Fund (NFIF), Congress has passed legislation which will increase insurance rates on certain properties. Outside of elevation and/or other mitigation techniques, the only way to provide relief to policy holders in your community is by joining the CRS or improving your CRS classification.
This advanced CRS course will examine all 19 activities of credit and focus more attention on those activities that can bring more credits to communities. By undertaking additional CRS activities (or elements within activities), communities can advance in class and move toward a lower CRS classification. This course will also discuss the modification and recertification processes along with the office and field verification procedures.
This 4 day workshop will cover the following:
- Modification, and Recertification Procedures
- Mandatory CRS Activities (310, 501-503, 510)
- 300 Series (Activities 320, 330, 340, 350, 360, 370)
- 400 Series (Activities 410, 420, 430, 440, 450)
- 500 Series (Activities 520, 530, 540)
- 600 Series (Activities 610, 620, 630)
- Technical Review Activities
- Verification Procedures
