The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in cooperation with the State of Utah Division of Emergency Management has prepared preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for review and comment. A FIRM is an official community map on which FEMA delineates both special flood management hazard areas and risk premium zones for the applicable community. These maps are used to help mitigate the effects of potential flooding in the area. The FIRM is also used to determine eligibility for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) which provides protection for property owners from potential losses due to flooding.
A Public Open House will be held on March 21, 2018 at the Springville Civic Center from 6:00pm – 8:00pm where the revisions to the FIRM will be presented and public comment solicited. Digital copies of the FIRM are available online at the below website:
