Flood Fighting

Various methods of flood fighting can be used to try to mitigate the effects of a flood event. Preparation before a flood event, and actions taken during and after a flood event may help lessen the damage to your property. Many homeowners do not know that flood damage is not covered by the standard homeowner's insurance policy. See Flood Insurance for more information.
