Flood Relief Workshops Offered
October 27, 2010 — Free workshops where residents can learn ways to reduce impacts from future flooding are being offered on Nov. 3 in Glenview and on Nov. 4 in Northbrook.
Mitigation specialists from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are hosting workshops in Illinois on small projects that can be undertaken by an individual homeowner at a reasonable cost.
Homeowners, service clubs, civic organizations, church groups and others in areas affected by basement flood damage are encouraged to attend a workshop. There will be a narrated presentation followed by a question and answer session. The FEMA booklet, "Protecting Your Home and Property from Flood Damage" will be available with other materials in both English and Spanish.
"We are pleased to be able to offer this information to our residents especially those most affected by flooding throughout our area," says Carol Teschky, Supervisor of Maine Township whose Office of Emergency Management is part of the workshops. The workshops are:
