"FloodSmart Tools and Resources for Emergency Managers is one of the best discussion hosted by emforum.org to date. Mr. Eastman's presentation manner and command of the material made it very easy to understand how valuable the FloodSmart.gov program is to our citizens.As Mr. Eastman cited, although only 16% of the public believe they are prepared for a disaster, the tools discussed will hopefully help raise this statistic -- because everyone of us know someone whose life has changed due to a flooding incident. I'm looking forward to disseminating the various recorded products from today's discussion to local EOC/Amateur Radio groups. Thank you."
