National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Community Press Release:

 

To all City of Emmett property owners,

 

Did you know flooding is America’s most common natural disaster?

 

Many people don’t realize how common and costly floods are and don’t have flood insurance. This leaves a lot of renters, business owners, and homeowners vulnerable: one inch of water can cause up to $25,000 in damage.

 

Review these common myths to learn why flood insurance is so important to protect the life you’ve built in the City of Emmett.

 

  1. MYTH: You can’t buy flood insurance if you don’t live in a floodplain.

    • Flooding can happen anywhere, not just in high-risk areas. Anyone in a participating National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) community can purchase flood insurance.

  2. MYTH: You can’t buy flood insurance if you live in a high-risk flood area.

    • Anyone can buy flood insurance in a participating NFIP community. There are also options for purchasing private flood insurance. It’s important to know that it takes 30 days for a policy to go into effect; don’t wait until storms are predicted or underway.

  3. MYTH: Homeowners insurance includes flood insurance.

    • Spoiler: It usually doesn’t! To protect your home from flood damage, you typically need a separate flood insurance policy. Business owners and renters should also purchase flood insurance to protect their property from flooding.

  4. MYTH: You can’t purchase flood insurance if your property has been flooded before.

    • You can! You are eligible to purchase flood insurance after your home, apartment, or business has flooded if your community participates in the NFIP.

  5. MYTH: Federal disaster assistance will pay for flood damage.

    • Not always, and not for all of it. Disaster assistance is available only after a Presidential disaster declaration. When available, it won’t pay for all the damage. Disaster assistance often comes in the form of a U.S. Small Business Administration disaster loan, which must be repaid with interest. Insurance is your best means of recovery from flooding.

 

The City of Emmett has recently adopted ordinance O2021-4, Flood Control.

By adopting this ordinance, the City of Emmett has become a National Flood Insurance Program, (NFIP) community, making city residents eligible to obtain flood insurance if they choose.
