  • a detailed site and property analyses
     
  • awareness for the diverse potential flood hazards
     
  • an adequate insurance coverage
     

All too often homeowners do not put their nice-to-have thinking into practice. Apparently institutions and experts did not achieve yet a sufficient sensitization of society and citizens to the risk awareness of flooding. The general situation throughout the world we can record is: people largely underestimate the flood hazards in their personal surrounding. And since there is no obligation to insure against flood risk and it’s potential damage, residents are even more reluctant to invest in private flood prevention. In addition, building owners often consider insurance premiums to be too high - especially in more vulnerable areas. What remains is relying on luck or state aid, consciously or unconsciously.
To have people know, that the effort and expenses of both: right precaution measures and insurance, would not only save a huge amount of the destructions and the costs but also lives - this is our task at flood label, and certainly also to provide the means of tuning their property`s flood resilience for the better and best.

 

 

Think about who you could ask for help and
who you
could offer to help
particularly vulnerable neighbours or relatives – in the event of a flood.
