Silver Jackets teams are collaborative, state-led, interagency teams that are continuously working together to reduce flood risk at the state level. Through the Silver Jackets program, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, additional federal, state, and sometimes local and tribal agencies provide a unified approach to addressing a state’s flood risk priorities. Often, no single agency has the complete solution, but each may have one or more pieces to contribute.
Silver Jackets team activities and projects occur throughout Minnesota.
The Silver Jackets program has multiple primary goals:
The Minnesota Silver Jackets team has been active since 2009. The team conducts monthly meetings and supplemental meetings as necessary. The team participates in regional and national flood risk management planning events. Team actions have also been instrumental in successful support of response to and recovery from recent flood events.
The Minnesota Silver Jackets team currently has two interagency projects in Minnesota.
Other activities include updates of the Minnesota all-hazard mitigation plan, the Minnesota Recovers Task Force and support of FEMA RiskMAP flood hazard mapping meetings.
The Silver Jackets team is a national coordination program activity funded by various authorities: Section 206 of the Flood Control Act of 1960; Section 22 of the Water Resources Development Act of 1974; and the Flood Control Act of 1955 (PL 84‒99).
