Overview of Project in State

As summarized on the Project Info page, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is working with State agencies, regional entities, and communities to update coastal flood hazard information and produce new digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for the Southeastern United States. In Georgia, the new coastal engineering analyses performed as part of the coastal flood risk study effort affect the counties listed below. Additional information about the coastal flood risk study effort for southeastern Georgia is provided on a FEMA Project Fact Sheet (PDF).

Project Team Information

The project team for the coastal flood risk study effort includes skilled professionals from the following organizations:

The project team for the coastal flood risk study effort for southeastern Georgia is working closely with the project team for the coastal flood risk study for northeastern Florida because the coastal engineering analyses cover the nine affected counties in Georgia listed above and nine affected counties in northeastern Florida. Please visit the Information for Northeast Florida Study Area page for additional information.

Community Contact Information

As with other similar projects undertaken by FEMA and partners in support of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the primary community contacts are the Chief Executive Officer, or CEO, and the Floodplain Administrator, or FPA.

The CEO is an elected official of a community (e.g., Mayor, Board of County Commissioners Chair or Chairman, County Council Chair or Chairman) who has the authority to implement and administer laws, ordinances, and regulations for that community.

The FPA is the community official who is responsible for implementing and enforcing floodplain management measures and for monitoring floodplain development. Floodplain management is the operation of a program of corrective and preventative measures for reducing flood damage, including, but not limited to, emergency preparedness plans, flood-control works, and floodplain management regulations.

Project team members have compiled contact information for the community CEOs and FPAs in the affected counties in a table accessible through the link below along with the addresses of the Community Map Repositories, the effective dates of the current effective FIRMs, and statistical information on flood insurance policies.  Additional information on the CEOs, FPAs, and other community officials generally is available on the individual community websites; links to the community websites, where available, also are included in the table below.

Coastal Study Contact Information

Please visit the Coastal Study Contacts page for information on who to contact at FEMA and GA DNR regarding the coastal flood risk study effort. The "Community Information" table mentioned above also is accessible through the Coastal Study Contacts page. For additional information, please visit the FEMA website or the GA DNR website.

Status and Location of Revised Flood Hazard Maps

To determine the status of the new digital FIRMs for the affected communities, or to view the Preliminary versions of the FIRMs and accompanying Flood Insurance Study (FIS) reports, interested parties can:

  • Visit the GA DNR website to view the status of all FIRMs updated by the State and to view the digital versions of the FIRMs. Status information for the counties affected by the Georgia coastal flood risk study is provided under the subheading "Georgia Coastal Physical Map Revision (PMR)."
  • Check with the county and community FPAs to determine whether a county or community is posting the FIRM on its own website.
  • Visit the Community Map Repository, or CMR, in the community of interest to view paper copies of the FIRMs and FIS reports.
    • The CMR is the local office in a participating community where the FIRM, FIS report, and related products (e.g., Letters of Map Change) are kept for local use and viewing by citizens.
    • The CMR addresses are provided in the Community Information for Georgia Coastal Counties table and on the Preliminary and current, effective versions of the FIRM Indexes.
    • The Preliminary and current, effective versions of the FIRM Indexes may be viewed or downloaded through the FEMA Flood Map Service Center website.

Available Resources

FEMA has designed stakeholder pages to identify resources that should be useful to certain interested parties. Links to the stakeholder pages appear on the left-hand side of each page of this Web Portal.

Through the Coastal Study Resources pages, visitors can access an array of useful publications and resources ((e.g., fact sheets, information sheets, flyers, brochures) developed by FEMAState agencies, other Federal agencies, and professional associations and other stakeholder organizations. FEMA will update this inventory of resources that appears on these pages regularly, so please check back often for the latest materials.

Many of the FEMA resources also are available from the FEMA Resource and Document Library. The FEMA Resource and Document Library is a searchable, web-based collection of publicly accessible FEMA information resources, including but not limited to the following: CDs, DVDs, publications, brochures, guidance and policy papers, program regulations and guidelines, forms, disability resources, audio and video files, posters, and slide presentations. Users can locate, download, save, or print items from this library.
