Entry Description
Operation Stay Afloat Conference Tomorrow

The Operation Stay Afloat conference about flooding prevention and mitigation, will be tomorrow (Thursday, March 13) at the Indiana Government Center South Auditorium and conference rooms.

Flooding is one of the most common emergencies that Indiana and the United States face each year. The goal of the conference is to use past experiences, such as the Great Flood of 1913, the flooding in June and September of 2008, and smaller flooding incidents that occur each year in Indiana, to educate and prepare for the future.

More than 100 individuals are expected to attend the conference, including emergency managers, floodplain managers, engineers, planners, and environmental managers from around the state. Session topics include dam safety, the National Flood Insurance Program, flood mitigation, and floodplain mapping. The conference is organized by the Indiana Department of Homeland Security and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

Thursday will mark the sixth time the biennial Operation Stay Afloat conference has been conducted. The conference runs from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
