Flood Awareness Education
Did you know that the City of Valley Center participates in the Community Rating System (CRS) program? CRS is part of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). By participating in this program, Valley Center residents living in the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) can receive a discount on their flood insurance premiums (ask your insurance agent for more details on this discount). A part of this program includes an Outreach Project that is geared towards raising Flood Awareness.
The weather forecast is showing rain all week so here are 3 Fast Flood Facts to remember:
*Heavy rain can bring dangerous flash flooding.
*6 inches of moving water can knock a person down.
*2 feet of moving water can sweep a vehicle away.
Whether you’re walking or driving, stay clear of floodwater.
