Long Beach Island residents are invited to attend a community outreach session on Saturday, April 21, for assistance with flood insurance. The event, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Island branch of the Ocean County Library, is sponsored by Flood Risk Evaluator.
“Whether you are confused about coverage options or FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) regulations/requirements, in just one free session, our professionals can offer you the guidance you need with on-the-spot mitigation reporting and flood insurance premium information,” a flyer for the program explains.
From 11 to 11:30 a.m., representatives from FRE will discuss changes to the National Flood Insurance Program, and will review new laws and regulations that would potentially affect policies, as well as mitigation steps to help homeowners save money.
Beginning at 11:30 a.m., attendees will have the opportunity to sit one-on-one with a certified floodplain manager to review current elevation certificate and flood insurance policy. The session will also include a Q & A.
If available, homeowners should bring their elevation certificate and current flood insurance policy. Or email the elevation certificate and flood insurance declaration page to firstname.lastname@example.org to have a complimentary FRE flood risk evaluation report waiting at the event. (Call 866-599-7065 for assistance obtaining an elevation certificate.)

The Island branch of the Ocean County Library is located at 217 South Central Ave. in Surf City. —J.K.-H.
