The Sea Level Rise Ready™ program (“Program”), including the term and designation Sea Level Rise Adaptable, are educational and marketing programs of Brizaga, Inc. (“Brizaga”) designed to raise awareness of the risks of sea level rise, educate the applicant (“Applicant”) and the general public regarding the risk of a selected building, and provide a visible means of displaying the awareness and participation. The designations are based on the best available data, projections, and science publically-available from peer-reviewed literature and the United States Government. Data, models, and thresholds used in this Program may change as the data and science evolves in time.
Brizaga assumes no responsibility for any action related to the Sea Level Rise Ready program. Brizaga provides no warranty, expressed or implied, through the Program.
Any offer of consulting time will be solely to provide information and further clarification on the Sea Level Rise Ready program, as well as generalized adaptation actions. It shall not be considered advice on property-specific adaptation actions without further engagement of the firm. Any adaptation measures should be done in consultation with the appropriate professionals, and should not be done solely based on the information provided by the Program.
The designation does not include the property surrounding a building or structure, nor does it consider the structural integrity of the building.
The program does not examine the risks of tidal flood associated with extreme events, and natural hazards, including, but not limited to non-tropical and tropical (hurricanes) low pressure systems, including storm surge, extreme tidal events associated with oceanic and atmospheric variability, earthquakes, rainfall events, tornadoes, and tsunamis.
