Federal Emergency Management Flood Plain Maps

Through the FEMA Map Service Center website, you can view and research National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) products, including Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMS), Flood Insurance Study (FIS) reports, and other mapping products. At this site, you can search for a FIRM in a community using a known address. The address search box is available on the left side of the MSC homepage. You can also create a customized FIRMette, a paper copy of any section of a FIRM produced on your computer. A tutorial for creating a FIRMette is available on the bottom right side of the MSC homepage.

If you are unable to locate the map using the address search, then click on the Product Catalog button, located in the main toolbar on the homepage of the MSC website. Click on the Effective FIRMs / FHBMs button and follow the subsequent prompts. The index map must be used to find the appropriate map panel for the area in question. The index map, typically located at the top of the generated list, always has the letters IND within the map number. Please note an area may have more than one index map.
