The State of Maryland in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been systematically updating Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for communities over the past several years. Maryland’s Flood Risk Application helps citizens determine their current flood risk based on effective Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), and assess future flood risk based on preliminary Digital FIRMs (DFIRMs). The application will also prompt users to launch a Flood Risk Guide, which will help users determine whether flood insurance is required or recommended for their property and how to obtain insurance if they do not already have it.
