Improving Flood Risk Management following a Major Flood
In May 2010, the City of Frankfort, Kentucky, was impacted by a major flood. The event underlined the need for an active Silver Jackets team to take full advantage of the window of opportunity in moving flood risk management forward. One of the team's first priorities was to work with the City of Frankfort to promote flood awareness and assist in flood risk management. Eleven state and federal agencies partnered with the City of Frankfort and Franklin County to take full advantage of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Silver Jacket Pilot Project funding to promote multi-agency collaboration and coordination while addressing community needs.
