About the Flood Response & Evacuation Plan
The Flood Response & Evacuation Plan (FREP) has been developed as a resource for the City of Columbus and the Bartholomew County Emergency Management Agency. It provides the necessary tools for forecasting the timing and severity of flooding; providing flood warnings to the community; identifying evacuation areas, gathering places, and shelters; pre-positioning emergency response personnel and equipment; and recovering after flooding has subsided.
