Pumps for Flood Management

SAVER Project: Pumps for Flood Management

Auxiliary mobile pumps are not a substitute for proper flood control infrastructure design and advance mitigation of flood hazards, but  they can be used to assist in the removal of water when flooding does occur. Responders can use mobile pumps for active flood response to combat rising water as well as flood mitigation by enhancing natural drainage after flooding has occurred.

The Market Survey Report and Application Note for Pumps for Flood Management are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).

Find this project in the FEMA Authorized Equipment List and InterAgency Board Interactive Standardized Equipment List.
