FEMA P-936, Floodproofing Non-Residential Buildings, features two hospital flood mitigation projects with floodwalls and FloodBreak® passive flood barriers. The new publication is intended to assist local government officials, engineers, architects, and property owners involved in the planning and implementation of floodproofing retrofits. Both hospital mitigation projects were FEMA funded and used a combination of floodwalls and passive flood barriers to protect the lifeline institutions. The combination is an effective approach for hospitals as it provides the flood protection these critical institutions need to ensure that they can provide healthcare to their communities while also ensuring full access for patients and staff until a flood event is imminent.
