DWR Underscores Risk, Promotes Awareness During Flood Preparedness Week
From the California Department of Water Resources (DWR):
“California’s vulnerability to flooding creates significant risk to public safety, the environment and the economy. During California Flood Preparedness Week (CFPW), Nov. 4-9, the Department of Water Resources and state, federal and local partners aim to educate Californians about flood risk in their communities and ways to prepare for flooding.
To kick off this week-long educational effort, California was today inducted into the Silver Jackets program at a letter signing ceremony in Sacramento. Silver Jackets teams are state-led interagency groups that work together to focus on state priorities to reduce flood risk through increased flood risk communication and improved emergency response processes. Through Silver Jackets, federal, state and local agencies can better coordinate activities that increase public awareness of flood risk.”
