A community outreach open to Long Beach Island property owners for assistance with flood insurance will be held Saturday, Oct. 14 at the Harvey Cedars Bible Conference.

The session, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., is sponsored by Flood Risk Evaluator. Local municipal officials and insurance agents will also be there. To reserve a spot, go to the website longbeachflood.eventbrite.com, or call 866-599-7065.

“Whether you are confused about coverage options or Federal Emergency Management Agency regulations/requirements, in just one free session our professionals can offer you the guidance you need with on the spot mitigation reporting and flood insurance premium information,” explains a flyer for the program. Learn about “improvements that may reduce your flood insurance premium.”

Homeowners should bring their current flood insurance policy and elevation certificate, if available. (Call 866-599-7065 if you do not have an elevation certificate, and help may be available, program presenters said.)

From 11-11:30 a.m., representatives from Flood Risk Evaluator will discuss changes to the National Flood Insurance Program, and will review new laws and regulations that will potentially affect policies, as well as mitigation steps to help homeowners save money.

An elevation certificate review Q&A session will be held beginning at 11:30 a.m., after which attendees will have the opportunity to sit one-on-one with a certified floodplain manager to review their current elevation certificate and flood insurance policy.

The session will then be opened up for questions.

Representatives from all six LBI municipalities will be present in connection to the NFIP’s Community Rating System, as will insurance agents from Anderson Insurance Agency, IKM Insurance Agency and The Van Dyk Group. The event contributes to the points that municipalities earn under the NFIP’s Community Rating System, which in turn helps the municipalities qualify for discounts for its residents’ flood insurance premiums.

The Harvey Cedars Bible Conference is located at 12 Cedars Ave., Harvey Cedars. (Turn west onto Camden Avenue at the traffic signal on Long Beach Boulevard, then turn left onto Cedars Avenue.)  — M.S.
