Webinar on Flood Vulnerability Assessment

A February 23, 2017, Silver Jackets webinar introduced a flood vulnerability assessment method for critical facilities, which was developed with funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Sea Grant College program. Flood plain managers deal with special requirements for critical facilities while meeting the requirements of Executive Orders 11988 and 13690, developing emergency action plans, infrastructure site planning, providing general technical assistance, and making communities resilient. Molly Woloszyn is the Extension Climate Specialist for Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant and the Midwestern Regional Climate Center, which are both a part of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Woloszyn has developed a method to assist floodplain managers by providing a tool to identify specific vulnerabilities to critical facilities. It was recently piloted in the Greater Chicago Metro area. The assessment includes recommendations and suggested resources to reduce risks to critical facilities.

A recording (mp3, 7.18 MB) of the webinar along with her presentation (pdf, 2.17 MB) on a tool for Flood Vulnerability Assessment for Critical Facilities are now available.
