Are You Flood Ready?
It's that time of year when flooding becomes a concern. Flooding poses a threat to life and safety, and can severely damage property.

Clackamas County Disaster Management wants you to be as prepared as possible if the unfortunate should happen. Visit their flooding preparedness webpage here for helpful information including: 
  • Preparing for Flooding
  • Sandbag Locations
  • Homeowner's Guide to Flooding
  • Flood Plain Management Information
  • Why You May Need Flood Insurance

Remember, preparedness is not about the disasters. Preparedness is about people. We want you to be ready to preserve your family, your community, and your way of life. PMAR, OAR, and NAR all have "toolkits" for Realtors® working with property located in flood plains.
