Event description

Description

In August of 2017, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) sent a packet of materials to your community, which included new preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) panels and the new Flood Insurance Study (FIS). The purpose of updating these products was to reflect all the work FEMA and your community have done to better assess the Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) and floodplain boundaries for the communities within Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania.


This Open House offers an opportunity to:

  • Review your preliminary FIRM and see potential impacts on your community
  • Meet with local officials to discuss opportunities moving forward tools and resources for communities to assess risk and promote mitigation efforts
  • Discuss changes to increase your resiliency moving forward
  • You may also view and download the preliminary FIRM and

FIS at www.msc.fema.gov


Who should attend?
Everyone. This is an opportunity for the general public to convene and share information, meet with local officials, and identify hazard mitigation and resilience priorities for Lackawanna County. Community officials, planners, State and Federal agency representatives, homeowner association representatives, environmental, emergency management, transportation, and economic development professionals should attend, as well as any individual or organization actively working in hazard mitigation, comprehensive and community planning, risk reduction, or sustainable community development.
