Sign marks flood awareness initiative on third anniversary of May 2010 flood

Lt. Col. James A. DeLapp, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District commander, speaks during a ceremony at England Park in Nashville, Tenn., where officials unveiled a high water mark sign. It is the first of more than a dozen high water marks to be placed in different locations around the city. The Corps participated in the "Know Your Line: Be Flood Aware" initiative to draw attention to Nashville's flood risk by showcasing how high the water rose during the historic May 2010 floods. The program was developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Park Service, USACE, U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Department of Housing and Development, U.S. Geological Survey, and U.S. Small Business Administration.

Traditionally, different agencies wear different colored jackets when responding to emergencies. For example, FEMA personnel wear blue and Corps personnel wear red. The name Silver Jackets is used to underscore the common mission of the diverse agencies involved.  The workshop was held Aug. 15-19, to promote effective and continuous collaboration between state and federal agencies, which is critical to successfully reducing the risk of flooding and other natural disasters in the United States and enhancing response and recovery efforts when such events do occur. No single agency has all the answers, but often multiple programs can be leveraged to provide a cohesive solution.
