FLAGSTAFF, Ariz – The City of Flagstaff and the Coconino County Flood Control District are helping residents in neighborhoods downstream of the Museum Fire burn scar prepare for the 2022 monsoon season.
The City of Flagstaff and the Coconino County Flood Control District are helping residents in neighborhoods downstream of the Museum Fire burn scar prepare for the 2022 monsoon season by placing pallets of new sandbags and trash bins throughout neighborhoods, which residents can use to repair their sandbag walls. Materials will be available from May 13 through July 1, 2022.
Here are some tips for residents to keep in mind:
If residents are unable to make necessary repairs to their emergency sandbag mitigation due to being elderly or having a disability, they can call 928-213-2102 starting May 24 to request assistance. Calls will address as many properties as time and resources allow. For general questions about Museum Fire flooding, residents can email email@example.com.
The threat of flooding is real, and residences in the Museum Flood area will remain at high risk for post-wildfire flooding for several years. Residents are encouraged to purchase flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Flood insurance is the only way for residents to be compensated for flood damage on private property. If a resident’s insurance agent is not aware of the procedures for selling flood insurance policies, residents can contact NFIP at 1-877-336-2627 for a referral. A local insurance agent can also be identified by visiting www.floodsmart.gov.
For questions related to the sandbag refresh operation, please contact Sam Beckett, City of Flagstaff Streets Section Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
