The objective of CRS credit for a PPI is to allow communities to think “outside” of the box and be creative in their approach to outreach for flooding. It provides credit for information programs that are designed to meet local needs and that are monitored, evaluated, and revised to improve their effectiveness.
The PPI planning process provides the opportunity for the Village to consider creative alternatives for disseminating messages about the flood hazard to the community and to leverage other stakeholders through their messaging and materials. The Village’s aim is to build on existing outreach efforts, stakeholder partnerships, and advances in technology and web-based outreach in order to support a diverse outreach program and deliver targeted messages to high priority areas and audiences.
Palmetto Bay's Program for Public Information was developed by David Stroud, CFM, Emergency and Hazard Mitigation Lead for the Wood group.
