Program for Public Information
Jefferson United Mitigation Professionals (JUMP), the Jefferson Parish based Community Rating System (CRS) Users Group, is comprised of Unincorporated Jefferson Parish, the Cities of Gretna, Harahan, Kenner, Westwego, and the Town of Jean Lafitte. Part of JUMP's mission is to take action in protecting the people and property of Jefferson Parish from future flooding. JUMP developed a Program for Public Information (PPI) in coordination with participants from real estate, banking, insurance and other private sectors and is the first group in Southeast Louisiana to complete and adopt a Multijurisdictional PPI!
The PPI serves as an official strategy for joint education and outreach efforts focusing on flood protection. The benefits of a Multijurisdictional PPI include a comprehensive outreach approach by providing communities and residents with clear, coordinated messages that are delivered in a cost-effective and consistent manner. The better access residents have to the flood risk and impacts, the higher chance these residents will be prepared to take action in reducing their risk. The result is a well-informed public, safer living environment, and lower costs associated with flood loss.
