About the Flood Safety Education Project
The Flood Safety Education Project is producing the FloodSafety.com website, companion DVD-ROMs, PSAs and several PBS videos with the goal of reducing flood-related fatalities, property damage and financial devastation. We promote flood safety to driver education programs, homebuyers, those living in or near floodplains, the general public, and decision-makers. This is an extremely comprehensive resource that is free to the public and valuable to both the laymen and flood specialists. We are arranging several promotional tie-ins with complimentary partners and media channels. We are also developing a series of online study guides that enable our materials to be used by educational institutions.
