Flood Insurance Outreach Event for LBI Residents Oct. 13

Oct 09, 2018

Long Beach Island residents are invited to attend a community outreach session on Saturday, Oct. 13, for assistance with flood insurance. The event, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the new Beach Haven Borough Hall, is sponsored by Smart Vent, a New Jersey-based manufacturer of foundation flood vents.

All six LBI towns will be represented for residents to ask questions.

“Whether you are confused about coverage options or FEMA (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,” a flyer for the program explains. Learn about “improvements that may reduce your flood insurance premium.”

Topics of discussion will include changes to the National Flood Insurance Program and new laws and regulations that would potentially affect policies, as well as mitigation steps to help save money.

An elevation certificate review Q&A session will also be held, after which attendees will have the opportunity to sit one-on-one with a certified floodplain manager to review current elevation certificates and flood insurance policies.

The session will then be opened up for questions.

If available, homeowners should bring their elevation certificate and current flood insurance policy. Or email the elevation certificate and flood insurance declaration page to fastpass@yourfloodrisk.com to have a complimentary F.R.E. flood risk evaluation report waiting at the event.

Call 866-599-7065 for assistance obtaining an elevation certificate.
