2022 Flood Safety Week in Illinois

Press Release – Monday, March 14, 2022

SPRINGFIELD – Flooding is the most common disaster across the country and can threaten almost every community in Illinois. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) in partnership with all local Emergency Management agencies and the National Weather Service will be recognizing the 2022 Flood Safety Week on March 14 – March 18, 2022.


“Flooding in Illinois is a constant widespread threat that affected all communities,” said IEMA Director Alicia Tate-Nadeau. “This week, we will reaffirm our dedication to keep our families safe and prepare ourselves with a comprehensive approach in personal and community preparedness against flooding.” 


Additionally, IEMA has partnered with FEMA Region-5 and the national FloodSmart Campaign which highlights the importance of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) including costs related to flooding, flood maps, and mitigation strategies.


During this week, Illinoisans are reminded:
