Whether a property is in or out of the Flood Hazard Area (FHA) as shown on the current Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) of the County.
Additional flood insurance data for a site, such as the FIRM zone and the base flood elevation or depth, if shown on the FIRM.
We have a handout on the flood insurance purchase requirement that can help people who need a mortgage or loan for a property in the SFHA.
