Flood Damage Maine
Flood preparedness should start with every homeowner and business owner so that when a disaster strikes public officials and the federal emergency response teams can best do their jobs. If the home or business is prepared and has the appropriate safety measures in place, then official can assess the damage and start on the water removal and mitigation immediately. Electricity can be the biggest cause of concern as it travels through water. Downed power lines can electrocute any worker who is on foot and can make travel difficult. Know where your break box is and have emergency numbers on hand.
Besides FEMA and MEMA, there are also County Emergency Management Agencies (CEMAs) for each county in the state of Maine. They have offices in such places as Lewiston, Windham, Farmington, Augusta, South Paris as well as eleven other towns around the state. Each of these offices help coordinate with local resources and fire departments in the case of a severe weather event but will also be involved if there is a hazardous material spill. While water damage caused by flooding can wash out roadways and public utilities, a spill, for example, has a very different protocol and keeping the public safe from toxic fumes that might travel through the air requires a fast response and the proper personal protection equipment.
