Storm Day 2023
The County of Ventura has been participating in the voluntary National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) since 2009 and has maintained a Class 5 rating since 2016. The Class 5 rating grants 25% premium discount for flood insurances in Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHA) and 10% discount for those in non-SFHA. Storm Day exercises occur annually to test the effectiveness and efficiency of the County of Ventura Public Works Agency’s flood warning and response procedures, technologies, communication networking, and other operational services. These exercises allow the agency to prepare, respond, and recover from unexpected scenarios before, during, and after a storm.
