|9 STEP : Prepare for the Next Flood|
Be prepared is more than just a Scout motto. Your home will very likely be flooded again someday. Preparing for the next flood will protect you and your family, your property, your finances, and your peace of mind. In addition to the floodproofing measures discussed in the previous step, you should buy flood insurance, develop a flood response plan, and help your community implement a flood protection program.
