Flood Prevention Device Practice Installation Day

In an ongoing effort to assist with the implementation of the recently adopted Floodplain Management Ordinance, the Code Enforcement Division has notified the Laguna Beach property and business owners located in the flood hazard zone of the upcoming 5th Annual Flood Prevention Device Practice Installation Day.

This is a voluntary educational emergency preparedness training event encouraged by FEMA. All persons employed to work in a business located within areas of special flood hazards are requested to be trained by the business owner on how to install the flood prevention devices and be provided a copy of the flood contingency measures plan.

Each year on the 4th Monday in October, the business owner and employees are encouraged to practice installation of the flood prevention devices. Therefore, Monday, October 23, 2017 is designated as the 5th Annual Flood Prevention Device Practice Installation Day.
