Free Webinar: Understanding Risk and Flood Insurance

August 17, 2022

Representatives from Coconino County and FEMA will conduct a free webinar to inform our community about the new flood risk to our neighborhoods and important information about flood insurance.

  • Over the past few years, the frequency of wildfires has increased in Coconino County and with that increase comes an increase in the risk of post-wildfire flooding. To help inform property owners about this increased risk and actions they can take to reduce that risk, the Coconino County Flood Control District has provided post-wildfire flood risk and mitigation information.
  • One way to reduce your flood risk and help you recover more quickly after a flood is to carry flood insurance. To help you learn more about private and federal flood insurance, the Coconino County Flood Control District and City of Flagstaff are hosting a free one-hour webinar on August 22 at 6:30 pm.

Topics will include:

The presenters will be flood insurance specialist Edie Lohmann (FEMA) and Bruce Bender (Bender Consulting Services, Inc.).

Here is how you can access the free webinar:
