During the meetings, residents can locate their property on the new map and talk to members of the project team, flood insurance professionals, and State officials about what their home’s placement on the new map means.

Flooding is the number one natural disaster in the United States. It is vital that property owners understand their risk and take advantage of the tools and programs available to them, including flood insurance. The FIRM and the associated Flood Insurance Study report are used by flood insurance companies to determine flood insurance requirements and costs.
