FEMA Region 6 office, located in Denton, Texas oversees federal emergency management for 68 Tribal Nations and the following states:

Environmental Planning and Historic Preservation

Potential impacts to the environment and cultural resources must be considered when a community applies for FEMA funding through Public AssistanceHazard Mitigation Assistance and Preparedness Grants.

Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP)

Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) is a national FEMA program that works with states, tribes, territories and local communities to evaluate and better understand their current flood risk, as well as the actions that can be taken to mitigate and become more resilient against future risk.

Determining Available Flood Hazard Information

The Available Flood Hazard Information (AFHI) tables are produced quarterly and may be issued intermediately in response to a Federal Disaster Declaration. AFHI tables allow access to all available flood hazard information within the FEMA flood mapping program, allowing communities, state, and federal entities access to all available data.

Base Level Engineering (BLE) Tools and Resources

We have resources to assist communities for the local review and incorporation of Base Level Engineering datasets in their floodplain management activities. These tools connect up with BLE data available, free-of-charge, on the interactive on-line portal, known as the Estimated Base Flood Elevation (estBFE) Viewer.

Virtual Flood Risk Open House

Updating flood maps can be a multi-year effort and providing community review of the maps before they go effective is an important part of the process. FEMA works with communities to provide information and resources online to view the Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps. It’s important for property owners to understand options if they need to consider flood insurance, or if they disagree with the maps.

When face-to-face meetings are not always possible, a Virtual Flood Risk Open House can provide many of the same resources and a link to FEMA’s Flood Map Changes Viewer.

Regional News and Information

Les catastrophes perturbent des vies et certaines familles peuvent quitter leurs maisons endommagées pour emménager dans des propriétés en location ou des hôtels. Si vous changez de numéros de téléphone ou d’adresses postales, il est possible que la FEMA ne puisse pas vous joindre. Après avoir demandé une assistance en cas de catastrophe, vous devez donc informer la FEMA à chaque fois que vos informations changent.
