FEMA Asking For Public Input On Private Sector Preparedness, Flood Insurance Program

November 7th, 2009 · No Comments

In an effort to reach out to its stakeholders, including the public, FEMA has announced outreach initiatives on business preparedness and flood insurance.

First, the agency will be holding a series of public meetings throughout the U.S. on the Department of Homeland Security’s Voluntary Private Sector Preparedness Accreditation and Certification Program (PS-Prep). PS-Prep is a partnership between DHS and the private sector that will enable private entities — including businesses, non-profit organizations and universities — to receive emergency preparedness certification.

The purpose of these meetings is to offer the public an opportunity to participate in the development of this new program. The schedule can be found here. For more information on PS-Prep.

FEMA also announced another feedback opportunity for the public. For the next 30 days, interested parties can visit to provide input and identify challenges regarding the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The official site of the National Flood Insurance Program
