StormReady and other City news

STORMREADY The City of Friendswood has again been recognized by the National Weather Service (NWS) as “StormReady.” The renewal follows an onsite evaluation in July by NWS personnel, who inspected and verified that the City of Friendswood has sufficient warning systems and communication equipment capacity to provide adequate emergency warning to the public. Jurisdictions that receive StormReady recognition also receive additional Community Rating System credits as assigned by the National Flood Insurance Program through FEMA, which can lower flood insurance premiums for all residential and commercial properties in Friendswood. In 2003, Friendswood was the first community in the Houston/Galveston region to be recognized as StormReady. The recognition has been successfully renewed every three years since. StormReady recognition is one facet of the City’s emergency preparedness program in creating a proactive approach to public safety through planning, education, and awareness training.

FLOOD INSURANCE Since Friendswood participates in the National Flood Insurance Program, if your property is in a high-risk zone known as a Special Flood Hazard Area, you are required by law to purchase and maintain flood insurance if you have received federal disaster assistance for flood damage. Otherwise, when disaster strikes again, you will be ineligible for federal assistance for flood damage to your home or its contents. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS
