Consulting.

When dealing with any project in a high-risk flood zone, flood insurance is only one part of an overall risk and cost reduction strategy. There are times when you may be able to remove the requirement of having flood insurance, which can reduce costs. Additionally, in new construction, it is critical to know how high to elevate a building, what the cost is, and strategies to further reduce risk. This has become even more important with FEMA's implementation of Risk Rating 2.0. Contact Joe to begin your consultation.

Images of some of Joe's keynotes.

Book Joe Flood to speak at your next event. Below are some recent presentations and keynotes.

When an agent is presented with a client who needs flood insurance, there are many options now in the flood marketplace.  There are over 140 companies offering private flood options.  Those options can offer better coverage at a better price.  But not always.  Without an agents due diligence, insureds may be missing out on the benefits from the NFIP.  This keynote begins by talking about the penalties of leaving or not at least looking at the National Flood Insurance Program.  Then, we dive into the process an agent should go through in order to write the flood policy.  The course will review underwriting guidelines, examples of both the NFIP and private flood insurance, and how they can also work together. 

Talk Length: 45 minutes to 1 hour

Audience: Insurance agents, real estate professionals 

Flood insurance is typically viewed as that pesky lender required policy that will never pay out.  But time and time again, floods show us that those communities that are well insured rebound faster.  In ‘Flood Insurance as a Tool For Community Resiliency”, Joe gives a unique perspective of flood insurance, as being viewed as a “bank account” for community resiliency.  As part of the presentation, Joe reviews the other “silos” of financial resiliency, proving that flood insurance is the best tool for recovery.  

Talk Length: 45 minutes to 1 hour.  Also available for half day seminar.

Audience: Anyone looking to broaden the appeal of flood insurance, and get a different perspective of flood risk. 

In late 2021, FEMA began the implementation of Risk Rating 2.0, also known as Equity in Action.  The new rating methodology has transformed how the NFIP rates structures.  Equity in Action’s more nuanced rating approach will no longer be based on flood zones or base flood elevation, but rather employ a “graduated” rating system that evaluates factors such as distance to water, types of flood exposure, replacement cost, and other advanced elements.

With all the changes happening to the NFIP, there are a lot of things that are not changing.  “Risk Rating 2.0: An Overview” dives into what is changing, and what is not with Equity in Action.  The course then gives several rating examples and shows how mitigation, building location, and other factors affect pricing.

Course Length: 30 – 45 minutes.

Audience: General stakeholders concerned about changes to the flood insurance program.
