How prepared are you to deal with a flood? No one wants to think about a home or neighborhood being hit by rapidly rising floodwaters. However, as with any natural disaster, you need to consider what steps you should take to minimize potential danger and damage. For this reason, Health IQ has designed a quiz to test your knowledge of important flood issues.
For example, what four items does the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommend you prioritize when collecting supplies in preparation for a possible flood event? If you are making your way through 6 inches of water, what is the biggest risk to your safety? If your car is filled with 6 inches of water, which challenge are you most likely to face — flat tires or a stalled engine? Once the waters recede, flood victims face a different set of problems. How does your homeowners insurance policy deal with flood coverage? What is and isn't covered by that plan? Can you rely on federal assistance in the aftermath of a flood, and what form will that assistance take?
Without an understanding of how flood insurance works, you may find that you don't have the protection you need. Take the time to learn the answers to these and other questions about flood preparation before disaster strikes. Health IQ is here to help you stay informed about all types of issues that affect your family's health and safety. Challenge yourself by testing your knowledge and you'll learn something new.
