FEMA/DCED Floodplain Ordinance Update Workshops
  
Please join the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in conjunction with the PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for Ordinance Update Workshops to aid communities that are required to update their local floodplain management ordinances as a result of receiving an updated Flood Insurance Study (FIS) and Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM).  These free workshops will be conducted via webinar, and FEMA/DCED representatives will be available to cover common questions or compliance issues that we see during the map update process.  During this time we will also answer your specific questions pertaining to required language, higher regulatory standards, or other questions you may have pertaining to the update process.
Whenever possible we ask that you submit your questions in advance of the webinars to our mailbox: FEMA-R3-FMI@fema.dhs.gov
These webinars are intended to provide additional information as you update your local floodplain ordinance, but your State NFIP Coordinator, Dan Fitzpatrick ( dafitzpatr@pa.gov ), and Fred Chapman ( frchapman@pa.gov ) remain excellent resources through this process.  Please continue to provide draft and adopted ordinances to them for review.
