    Go to Resource
    When disaster strikes, the ability of a business to return to operation depends substantially on how well that company has planned its response strategies and documented the steps required to getting back to business at its various locations. To accomplish this, some larger companies employ professionals in risk assessment, disaster response, and business recovery planning.

  • Reducing Flood Losses through the International Codes (2003 I-Codes) (2005)

    Go to Resource
    This guide is intended to help community officials decide how to integrate the 2003 edition of the International Codes (I-Codes) into their current floodplain development and regulatory processes in order to meet the requirements to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Careful attention is required to ensure that all requirements of the NFIP are addressed by communities through both building codes and other ordinances or regulations. Adoption of one or more of the I-Codes, by themselves, does not necessarily meet those requirements. This guide is not intended as an endorsement of any specific approach for achieving effective management of flood hazards, nor does it explain the NFIP requirements and how to administer them. This publication is available in hardcopy for a modest fee (www.iccsafe.org).
