New Resources and Training for Community Officials

Besides the work maps, FEMA is also producing comparison maps to highlight areas where FHAs, or high risk flood areas have increased or decreased between the current effective FIRM and the work maps. These maps will be displayed online in a digital map viewer and can help local officials understand the number of structures and people affected by the floodplain boundary changes. This information can be very useful for community planning and mitigation efforts.  
In late 2017, FEMA will also be offering training for community officials in the region on a number of related topics including building codes, floodplain management, and Elevation Certificates.
For more information, contact Alan Springett of FEMA Region II at or 212-680-8557.
