FEMA Looks to Spread Flood Safety with New Toolkit

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) targets social media outlets to help spread important information about flood safety.

At best, flooding will just cause minimal damage to the outside of your home. At worst, the results of a serious flood could be deadly.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recently released a brand new flood safety toolkit that stresses the most important ways to survive a flood.

Most of FEMA’s new flood safety toolkit relies on social media sharing to spread important information. There are dozens of posts aimed at Twitter and Facebook to help people understand the dangers of flooding and the precautions that should be taken.

One such post for Facebook reads as follows:

  • Everyone – including individuals, families, homeowners, renters, property owners, and business owners – should understand the flood risk for their home and property and the best ways to keep themselves, their loved ones, and their property safe from flooding now and in the future.

The flood safety toolkit also comes with several important graphics to share across social media.
