The Planning and Zoning Office has placed the following FEMA books and pamphlets in the
Pendleton County Public Library for your convenience.
• Above the Flood: Elevating Your Flood Prone House
• Answers to Questions About the NFIP
• Elevated Residential Structures
• Protecting Building Utility Systems from Flood Damage
This material covers the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and protecting your home from flood damage. It will be available at the main circulation desk for anyone interested in learning more about these programs.
Falmouth, Butler and Pendleton County all participate in FEMA’s Community Rating System (CRS). The more points a community gets in the CRS program, the lower the flood insurance premiums are for residents who must purchase NFIP insurance. Utilizing and making this material available to the public goes toward CRS points and lower premiums. It’s also a good source of information for our flood prone area.
