Baldwin County Resilience Meeting

01/14/2019 4:05 PM | Hunter Simmons (Administrator)

As you are aware, the Alabama Office of Water Resources (OWR), in partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), recently updated your Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report under our Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning (Risk MAP) program.

We are writing to notify you about the upcoming Resilience Meeting for Baldwin County:

Date: January 17, 2019

Time: 10:00 am (CST)

Location: Foley Civic Center

407 East Laurel Avenue

Foley, Alabama 36535

Please RSVP no later than Monday, January 14.

The objective for this meeting is to provide you with information that will help you to utilize updated flood risk information and build local capacity for implementing priority mitigation activities within the affected study area and your community. We encourage all communities to participate during the meeting and would like to invite you to share your community’s own best practices that demonstrate successful flood hazard mitigation.

The Resilience Meeting will also be an opportunity to discuss your community’s communication and outreach plans, both for internal communication and outreach efforts to your residents. Local education about flood risk, and risks from other hazards, is an essential part of building community resilience.

A formal invitation letter will be mailed out to all communities in Baldwin County within the next couple of weeks. This invitation will include additional details about the upcoming Resilience Meeting.

We hope your community can attend, and we look forward to hearing about your mitigation success stories!

Sincerely,

Casie Pritchard
