FEMA FIRM MAPS
Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs)
What is a FIRM?
It is the official map of a community on which FEMA has delineated both the special hazard areas and the risk premium zones applicable to the community.
Why would I need to use a FIRM?
- Private citizens and insurance and brokers use the FIRM to locate properties and buildings in flood insurance risk areas.
- Community officials use the FIRM to administer floodplain management regulations and to mitigate flood damage.
- Lending institutions and federal agencies use the FIRM to locate properties and buildings in relation to mapped flood hazards, and to determine whether flood insurance is required when making loans or providing grants following a disaster for the purchase or construction of a building.
