Ellicott City Is Hoping DHS’ Flood Apex Program Is a Match Made in Heaven
G&H International was proud to support this group!
In 2017, the National Conversation on Homeland Security Technology hosted a series of roundtables in support of DHS S&T’s Flood Apex program. Several officials from Howard County, MD attended the Flood Apex Commercial Insurance Roundtable and shared in-depth about Ellicott City’s recent flood experiences and how technology innovation could help mitigate future flooding. As a result, the Flood Apex program and Ellicott City are working collaboratively on a project to deploy sensors in the watershed, which will give officials data on how rain events affect rivers and how to best alert residents.
