Coastway, city to hold seminar on flood insurance


Coastway Community Bank, in conjunction with the city of Warwick, is hosting a free seminar for the public on changes to the National Flood Insurance Program Wednesday, Oct. 23, from 5 to 7 p.m. in City Council Chambers at Warwick City Hall, 3275 Post Road.

Speaking at the seminar are Michelle Burnett, CFM, state floodplain coordinator for the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency, and Doug Platt, flood territory manager at Selective Insurance Company of America. Burnett and Platt will cover mapping changes in Rhode Island that affect residents’ need for flood insurance and the ramifications of these changes. A question and answer period will follow. Seating is limited and attendees are encouraged to arrive promptly.

“Coastway has a strong tradition of community service in our city and throughout Rhode Island,” said Warwick Mayor Scott Avedisian. “I thank Coastway’s management and staff for recognizing that changes to the NFIP are going to have a dramatic impact on many Warwick business owners and residents. I sincerely appreciate Coastway’s willingness to organize and host this forum to provide another opportunity for people to get the answers they need and to learn how the new regulations will impact them.”
