PreFIRM Open Public Meetings – February 25th and 26th

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), FEMA Region II will be hosting two public meetings to present the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) for comments and appeals.  The FIRM determines the insurance rates for the National Flood Insurance Program.  These meetings will begin our 90 day appeals period prior to FEMA issuing  a Letter of Final Determination (LFD).  The LFD initiates the 6 month adoption period before the new maps become effective.  All appeals will be resolved prior to LFD.  Effective FIRMs become the basis for community floodplain management and insurance requirements.  The first meeting will be conducted at the Ocean County Complex, Cafeteria, 129, Hooper Avenue, Toms River, NJ 08754 on February 25, 2015 from 4:00PM until 8:00 PM. The second meeting will be conducted at the Ocean County Southern Service Center (OCSSC) 179 South Main Street, Manahawkin, NJ 08050 on February 26, 2015 from 4:00 PM until 8:00 PM.
