Nevada Silver Jackets
The vision of the Nevada Silver Jackets team is to serve as a catalyst in developing comprehensive and sustainable solutions to flood hazard issues, including mitigation planning, flood hazard mapping, risk reduction activities, response and recovery planning.
What is Silver Jackets?
Silver Jackets is an innovative program that provides an opportunity to consistently bring together multiple state, federal, and sometimes tribal and local agencies to learn from one another and jointly apply resources to reduce flood risk. The Silver Jackets teams are state-led interagency teams.
No single agency has the complete solution — each has one or more pieces, similar to squares in a patchwork quilt. The Silver Jackets program can be viewed as the quilting bee, the forum where all agencies come together to put their programs together and implement a solution. To achieve communities that are sustainable and resilient to natural disasters, especially flooding, partnerships are an important part of success.
