Hurricane Season is Here

Dear FEMA Stakeholder,
 
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and its National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) are encouraging residents to purchase a flood insurance policy ahead of hurricane season. We want to alert you of this effort and invite you to help spread the word about the vital protection and peace of mind flood insurance offers in the in the event of flood damage.


We are running radio and digital media campaigns in Texas throughout hurricane season and invite you to help amplify this important message by engaging your networks. 
You can help your community’s residents prepare for hurricane season by following these four easy steps:
 
  1. Encourage members of your community to reach out to their local agent to purchase a flood insurance policy before peak hurricane season
  2. Share NFIP materials including social media resources, brochures, posters, flyers, and videos on your website, via e-mail, and through your network’s newsletter or listserv
  3. Use our sample media content to post on platforms such as Twitter and Facebook
  4. Embed the NFIP Cost of Flooding Tool and other engaging materials such as Survivor Stories to your website
