- The Coastal Hazard Analysis Modeling Program (CHAMP) is a software program designed to enable the user to perform storm-induced erosion treatments, wave height analyses, and wave runup analyses associated with coastal flood hazard assessments. The tutorial will demonstrate the many functions of the program including entering, visualizing, tabulating and charting data, and performing coastal engineering analyses within a user-friendly environment.

- This PEA evaluates the long-term and permanent housing actions proposed by the State of Mississippi (State) and FEMA under the AHPP for Mississippi residents displaced as a result of Hurricane Katrina. This PEA also provides the public and decision-makers with the information required to understand and evaluate the potential environmental consequences of these actions. FEMA will use this PEA to determine the level of environmental analysis and documentation required under NEPA for any proposed AHPP housing action in Mississippi, given the available site-specific information. If the alternatives, levels of analysis, and site-specific information of an action proposed for FEMA funding are fully and accurately described in this PEA, then no further documentation will be required to comply with NEPA.
Environmental Assessment for Fire Station, LaBelle-Fannett Volunteer Fire Department, LaBelle, TexasLaBelle-Fannett’s VFD provides fire and rescue emergency response services to a population of approximately 7,000 people in an area encompassing approximately 230 square miles in central Jefferson County. As a direct result of flooding from Hurricane Ike, the LaBelle-Fannett’s VFD station was severely damaged beyond repair. The purpose of the proposed action is to relocate and construct a new fire station so that the LaBelle-Fannett VFD can return to its pre-disaster function and continue to provide effective emergency response services. The previous fire station was located in the 100 year floodplain. The proposed new location would be located in an area outside of the base floodplain, have greater access to major streets and highways, and would allow the VFD to use the station for an emergency shelter during the next flooding event.
National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM) – Residential Fire Safety Institute (RFSI) Cooperative Agreement Guidance and Application KitThe purpose of this cooperative agreement is to provide funding to the National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM) to perform random compliance checks on the properties listed on the National Master List of Fire-Safe Hotels and Motels. The purpose of the guidance in this document is to assist FEMA and partners in preparing, developing, and managing grant activities.
- FEMA has been engaged in a comprehensive review of its National Flood Insurance Program to identify reforms that will enable us to better address flood risks. A part of that review has included working with members of Congress and other stakeholders regarding FEMA's approach to mapping flood risk with respect to levees. As a result, FEMA has developed a revised set of procedures that account for several typical non-accredited levee scenarios. These scenarios characterize actual conditions that a community may encounter when addressing non-accredited levees or levee systems.

Federal Emergency Management Agency Continuity Guidance Circular 2, Continuity Guidance for Non-Federal Entities: Mission Essential Functions Identification ProcessThis document provides additional planning guidance to assist non-Federal entities and organizations in identifying their essential functions.
The National Preparedness Directorate (NPD) has developed a program to assist the emergency management/response community identify products that adhere to standards and the concepts and principles of the National Incident Management System (NIMS). The program, called the NIMS Supporting Technology Evaluation Program (NIMS STEP), provides objective evaluations of supporting technologies. Evaluation activities are designed to help expand technology solutions, and provide the emergency management/response community with a comprehensive process to assist in the purchasing of incident management products.

- The CRS encourages local governments to adopt regulations that require the foundation design in a Coastal A Zone compy with the more stringent requirements applied to V Zones. An updated version of this publication, which will correspond to the new credits in the 2013 CRS Coordinator’s Manual, is in preparation. Meanwhile, the background explanations and examples in this document can still be useful for communities as a learning resource, even though the specific credit points referenced may need to be updated.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency ("FEMA") within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is giving public notice of its intent to provide financial assistance to the State of Vermont, local governments, and private nonprofit organizations under major disaster declaration FEMA-4330-DR-VT. FEMA is also giving public notice that, in some cases, it may provide financial assistance for activities that may affect historic properties, may be located in or affect wetland areas or the 100-year floodplain, and/or may involve critical actions within the 500-year floodplain.
This table includes the sources and locations of the flood hazard information available for Texas as of May 31, 2017, sorted by county and community.
The Earth Data Analysis Center (EDAC) at the University of New Mexico in collaboration with New Mexico Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management developed and hosted a public website to provide geospatial support to New Mexico communities that are at risk of flooding. EDAC georeferenced and generated vector geospatial datasets of the Special Flood Hazard Areas depicted on the FIRMs. EDAC then developed a web application that allowed these data to be viewed with a variety of geospatial base maps for the counties.
