NH Flood Hazards Handbook - Just Released!

Learn how to improve community resilience to future floods


The New Hampshire Silver Jackets Team announces the release of the NH Flood Hazards Handbook, a new guide designed to help community officials prepare for, respond to, and recover from floods. The handbook includes guidance, best practices, and information about available federal and state resources organized into situation-specific sections: Before the Flood, During the Flood, and After the Flood. Also included is a customizable Flood Response and Recovery Checklist that can be used by municipal officials to identify and manage priority activities when a flood event does happen.

Municipal officials are encouraged to download a copy of the handbook from the NH Silver Jackets Team website at and learn how it can help them improve their community’s resilience to future floods.

The NH Silver Jackets is a state-led team formed in 2015 which brings together state and federal agencies to focus on flood risk management issues that affect NH communities. The team includes representatives from over 15 agencies and programs.
