Brunswick County CRS Class Rating Increases to 8

04.12.2018

Brunswick County has met the standards to increase its Community Rating System (CRS) Class rating from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to an 8, qualifying for a discount in the premium cost of flood insurance for NFIP policies.

The CRS is a voluntary program which recognizes community floodplain management activities, like ensuring citizens comply with the appropriate FEMA guidelines and helping people protect their property. Similar to fire insurance district ratings, higher CRS ratings mean lower flood insurance premiums for residents in Special Flood Hazard Areas.

“The floodplain management activities implemented by your community qualifies it for a 10 percent discount in the premium cost of flood insurance for NFIP policies issued or renewed in Special Flood Hazard Areas on or after May 1, 2018,” read a letter from William Lesser, CRS Coordinator, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, to County Manager Ann Hardy with notice of the increased rating. “This savings is a tangible result of the flood mitigation activities your community implements to protect lives and reduce property damage.”

“This is wonderful news for our citizens, and is a credit to the foresight and support of Brunswick County’s Commissioners and the efforts and leadership of Deputy County Manager Steve Stone, Code Administration Director Michael Slate, and the Code Administration staff,” said County Manager Ann Hardy.

Brunswick County had previously had a CRS Class 10 rating. The increase to a Class 8 rating reflects efforts by Brunswick County Code Administration to maintain elevation certificates, enforce higher regulatory standards, adopt and implement the Southeastern NC Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan and the Natural Floodplains Functions Plan, and provide information about flood protection and building requirements through outreach projects and through making documents available in Brunswick County libraries and on the website, among others.
