Floods are the #1 natural disaster in the United States. To protect the health, safety, and welfare of homes and their occupants during a flood event, homes must be built into compliance with local, state, and federal codes and regulations. This course describes floodplains and the potential hazards to buildings. The course also defines the differences in engineered and non-engineered flood openings and their ability to ensure resilient structures, and explains the differences between wet floodproofing and dry floodproofing techniques, and when they are applicable.
