Residents plan “Celebrate Sabrina” day

Residents of the Town of Surfside Beach have scheduled a “Celebrate Sabrina” day for March 9th at 12 noon at Town Hall.

The event is open to the public. All are invited to attend.

Sabrina Morris Adair served the town as Director of Planning, Building & Zoning for many years.

She was among the most beloved of town employees by residents who now wish to show their appreciation for her outstanding work.

Under Sabrina’s leadership, Surfside Beach has one of the lowest CRS flood ratings in South Carolina. The town currently rates at a 5. Horry County rates a 7.

The CRS uses a Class rating system that is similar to fire insurance rating to determine flood insurance premium reductions for residents. CRS Classes* are rated from 9 to 1. Today, most communities enter the program at a CRS Class 9 or Class 8 rating, which entitles residents in Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) to a 5 percent discount on their flood insurance premiums for a Class 9 or a 10 percent discount for Class 8. As a community engages in additional mitigation activities, its residents become eligible for increased NFIP policy premium discounts. Each CRS Class improvement produces a 5 percent greater discount on flood insurance premiums for properties in the SFHA.
