Information About New Flood Maps and Flood Ordinance Changes

06.13.2018

Brunswick County is considering adopting new flood maps and amending the County’s Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance, to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

FEMA regularly updates Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) using studies to improve the maps and ensure their accuracy. The last maps FEMA approved for our area were adopted in 2006; since then, FEMA has worked to study and improve these maps. Now that FEMA has approved updated maps, Brunswick County can adopt them and continue to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

To view the current effective maps or the preliminary maps on the State’s website, visit the Flood Risk Information System (FRIS) – Flood Maps, which will automatically show the current effective maps. To view the preliminary maps, in the top right corner of the page, click on “Effective” and change to “Preliminary.” This will allow the viewer to see the maps being adopted on August 28, 2018.

Brunswick County will be scheduling a public hearing about these changes, and a public informational workshop will be held on July 10, 2018 at 6 p.m. in the County Commissioners Chambers, at 30 Government Center Drive in Bolivia, NC.

Hurricane Season is June 1 to November 30

But disasters are not limited to hurricanes or a specific time of year. They can occur anytime, anywhere. Emergency services may not be immediately available if they are also impacted. What will YOU do until help arrives?

Everyone should have an emergency plan and be prepared to take care of themselves for at least the first 72 hours after a disaster. Remember, no two disasters are the same; the most effective way to protect you and your family is to be prepared.

The Brunswick County Emergency Services Department would like everyone to learn how to prepare their families, homes and businesses for all types of emergencies including natural and man-made disasters.

Four simple steps can help YOU get ready:

  1. Get a kit of emergency supplies.
  2. Make a plan of what you will do.
  3. Be informed about what might happen.
  4. Get involved in preparing your community
