Lori Lehr helps municipalities effectively and efficiently manage participation in the Community Rating System. See below for testimonials from communities I have assisted.

Munroe County, Florida Coastline-square

“Lori has a way of breaking down the more complex components and requirements of the CRS to be more digestible for her client. This is tremendously helpful when coordinating information. Her exceptional communication skills, methodical practices and her endless supply of patience produces excellent results.”

Billie Jacoby

Regulatory Review Supervisor/CRS Coordinator

“I first worked with Lori when we were CRS instructors at the Emergency Management Institute. It was great to work with someone who not only knows her stuff, but is an excellent instructor. I’ve been lucky enough to work with her on other projects after we both left CRS employment. I’ve seen how she is also an excellent project manager. On top of that, she knows the CRS as well as any consultant I know.”

French & Associates, Ltd.

“We hired Lori Lehr to manage our CRS program and it is among the best decisions we’ve ever made.  Lori’s in-depth knowledge and familiarity of this increasingly complex program and her ability to work hands on with our staff allowed us to capture our eligible points to maintain our Class 6 rating with an optimistic goal of improving to a Class 5 in the year to come.”

Jonathan S. Frye, PE, CFM Engineering Manager

Santa Barbara County Flood Control & Water Conservation District

“Lori’s work was impeccable.  She communicated well with our staff across multiple departments to ensure that we had the correct documentation to submit with our CRS Cycle Verification, and to find CRS credit that hadn’t been submitted previously.  She also worked with ISO during our Verification Visit to explain documents and ensure that we submitted everything the ISO Specialist needed during the 30-day period after the visit to complete our file.  We highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to submit the best package possible for review in their CRS program.”

“Lori Lehr helped the City of Boynton Beach navigate the 2021 CRS program audit. With her vast knowledge of the CRS program and expert guidance, the City advanced in the program going from a CRS Class 6 to a CRS Class 5. Lori took time to meet with each staff member to explain their roles in the City’s CRS participation and tirelessly worked to help the City reach CRS Class 5 goal.”

“I have worked with Lori lehr for many years, both with the Town of Jupiter Island and now for the Town of Palm Beach. Lori is superb in her work within the CRS program, and has always successfully assisted my communities with the five year cycle visits and annual recertifications. She is always prompt, thorough and professional in her work product, meeting all expectations and deadlines. She communicates very well with both her clients and her peers, whether at the local, county, state or federal level. Recently she was helpful in assisting Palm Beach achieve a Class 6 rating.
