Flooding Hazards: Science and Preparedness - AWR-362

Course Description:

Flooding Hazards: Science and Preparedness is an awareness-level, eight-hour course that addresses the current science of the causes of floods (both meteorological and otherwise), flood forecasting, flood risk assessment, and best practices for preparation and mitigation for both short-and long-fuse flooding events. Modules include instruction on FEMA flood risk maps and the National Flood Insurance Program, how to read and interpret forecasts, watches, and warnings from the National Weather Service, and proper preparation for sudden flooding and long-fuse flooding. Key concepts and discussion topics will be reinforced with facilitator-lead group activities that utilize real world flood scenarios.

Course Objectives:
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Differentiate between different types of flooding hazards based on the meteorological and hydrological conditions;
  • Access and interpret FEMA flood risk maps for their area;
  • Identify organizations involved in forecasting and monitoring flooding, and understand their products; and
  • Describe dissemination methods for public warnings.
