The City of Fremont offers the following flood safety tips to help residents protect their homes and families from potential flooding due to winter storms.
- Know your flood hazard: To determine whether your property is within a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), visit the City’s flood info webpage, email us, or call the City’s Engineering Division at 510-494-4718.
- Protect people from the hazard: Designate a place where your family can rendezvous after an evacuation order is issued.
- Protect your property from the hazard: Protect your basement from flooding by making sure your downspouts drain away from your house.
There may be additional flood proofing improvements that can be implemented to your structure to reduce the damage caused by flooding. If you are at risk for flooding, you should consider the feasibility of flood proofing your facility via elevating your building or wet flood proofing.
