On March 18, from 12:45 to 2:15 p.m. there will be a webinar at the Carrabelle Library meeting room to introduce and explain the Community Rating System (CRS).

CRS provides reduced premiums for flood insurance policy holders in communities that implement programs and activities that exceed the minimum criteria for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program. If your community conducts floodplain mapping, regulatory, loss reduction, emergency management, and/or public information activities, you could benefit from this program. Come learn about CRS basics credit points and classes, costs and benefits, where to get help, and how to apply.

This webinar is for people new to the CRS, especially from communities not yet in the program. The target audience is local officials, floodplain managers, and members of the public interested in flood protection.

This training is part of the new CRS Webinar Series and will be repeated along with more advanced topics in the coming months. If you are unable to attend but would like to learn more, the training session schedules are posted at
