Floodwaters can quickly destroy your home and your belongings. After the flood waters recede, the average person is out of their property for around 9 months while it dries and is refurbished. This extended period of time puts a major strain on families and/or businesses and commercial organizations. There are steps you can take to substantially cut down your risk such as being aware of the flood zone for your location, planning and preparing in advance if a flood is anticipated, and taking action to protect your home or business from being flooded. The City of Hollywood’s Public Utilites staff are available to provide flood protection advice and guidance in an effort to keep yourself, your family and your property safe. Staff is available to help you determine:
- Flood zone for your location
- How to protect yourself, your family, and your property
- Property insurance guidance for flood hazard
- How to build or remodel responsibly
- Steps to protect our environment to minimize risk
