Duluth, Minn., July 26, 2012 -- Ceil Strauss (center), Minnesota state coordinator for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), conducts a training class for the staff at FEMA's Minnesota Joint Field Office about flood insurance. The NFIP offers flood insurance to homeowners, renters, and business owners if their community participates in the program. Participating communities agree to adopt and enforce ordinances that meet or exceed FEMA requirements to reduce the risk of flooding. Norman Lenburg/FEMA - Location: Duluth, MN
