The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation are hosting two Flood Risk Open Houses to provide Erie County residents with an opportunity to learn more about their updated flood maps, known as Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs). Community officials and FEMA representatives will be on hand to answer residents’ questions about the maps, the mapping process, and flood insurance.
The Open Houses are scheduled for Wednesday, July 24 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Old First Ward Community Center, at 62 Republic Street, Buffalo, NY 14204 and on Thursday, July 25 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Hamburg Town Hall, at S-6100 South Park Avenue, Hamburg, NY 14075.
During this time, residents can locate their property on the new maps and talk to members of the project team, flood insurance professionals, and state officials about what their home’s placement on the new maps 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.
