FEMA NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM – INSURANCE AGENT TRAINING WORKSHOPS
Offered In collaboration with DLCD and the City of Newport
Lincoln County, Waldport, Yachats, Toledo, Newport, Depoe Bay, Siletz, and Lincoln City have new FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps that will take effect on October 18, 2019. As this may affect flood insurance rates and need, DLCD and FEMA Region X are holding flood insurance workshops for local insurance agents and other interested parties on August 27, 2019, in Newport Oregon, to assist local agents by providing NFIP training.
Scott Van Hoff, Senior Flood Insurance Specialist for FEMA Region X, will be presenting information on the National Flood Insurance Program via two separate insurance workshops, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Each workshop will last for two hours and the same information will be covered at both (agents only need to attend one of the two workshops). For more details see the schedule below. There will also be an opportunity for agents to drop-in and ask questions or discuss matters informally between the two sessions.
The following topics will be covered at each of the two (2) hour flood insurance workshops:
- What changes in FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) means for insurance agents
- Writing Flood Insurance Policies
- Identifying the most beneficial premium/coverage
- Grandfathering policies
- Newly mapped policies
- Determining the lowest floor
- Type of rating with an Elevation Certificate and without an Elevation Certificate
All of these topics will be covered during each of the two sessions. Pick the session that works best for you and come learn more.
