How to Get Involved: Floodplain
SEMSWA's Program for Public Information (PPI)
As part of revisions to the Community Rating System (CRS) Program, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) introduced the Program for Public Information (PPI) as a new planning tool to provide a step-by-step coordinated approach to flood hazard outreach. The PPI can be developed and implemented by a single community or with other communities as a multi-jurisdictional effort. SEMSWA is working with other communities in the Denver Metro area to create a multi-jurisdictional PPI.
The purpose is to improve communication with citizens, and to provide information about flood hazards, flood safety, flood insurance and ways to protect property and natural floodplain functions to those who can benefit from it. The intent of the CRS program, and the PPI, is to reduce injury to people and damage to property from future floods. Coordination between jurisdictions through a Multi-Jurisdictional Program for Public Information (PPI) further increases efficiency in resource use and improves communication with citizens.
To learn more about the PPI, or to find out how you can participate, please contact the Floodplain Department at (303) 858-8844.
