"The Risk of Disaster and How to Reduce It"

Presented by Chuck Chase, Floodplain Outreach Coordinator for the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources 

Risks surround us. They always have.  Sometimes Insurance can be a solution and more often it is a part of the greater plan.  This program will demonstrate the importance of flood insurance, the critical function of insurance in the greater flood risk reduction program, and illuminate the many types and uses of flood maps for insurance purposes.  Insurance is a significant part of the solution for flood issues. In this presentation, Chuck will look at the risks we deal with today in Nebraska.  He will provide an overview of basic Risk Analysis to see how a community assesses risk. A discussion of risks faced in Nebraska 100 years ago will lead into a discussion of how we mitigate risk.  This will lead us to a presentation of the way we mitigate flood risk and the important part insurance plays. Finally, we will look at flood maps from an insurance agent’s perspective, providing a greater understanding of these tools and how they pertain to rating flood insurance.

Chuck Chase presents training & outreach programs that help local communities implement the National Flood Insurance Program. Chuck is a retired Coast Guard Chief and formerly an Exercise Training Officer for the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency.  He is on the Professional Development committee for the Nebraska Floodplain and Stormwater Manager’s Association. Chuck has a BS in Education, an MS in Quality Systems Management, and is a member of the State of Nebraska Speakers Bureau.

This program will provide one hour of P&C CE for both Nebraska and Iowa, pending approvals.
