FEMA L273 Managing Floodplain Development through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)

This is the field-deployed version of the FEMA Emergency Management Institute (EMI) E273 Managing Floodplain Development through the NFIP course.

This four-day course is designed to provide a comprehensive, organized training opportunity for local officials responsible for administering their local floodplain management ordinance. The course focuses in-depth on the NFIP and concepts of floodplain management, maps and studies, ordinance administration, mitigation, flood insurance, BFE determination, elevation certificates, and the relationship between floodplain management and flood insurance.

The target audience is local officials responsible for administering local floodplain management ordinances, including but not limited to floodplain management administrators, building inspectors, code enforcement/zoning officers, planners, city/county managers, attorneys, engineers, surveyors, and public works officials. The course is designed for those officials with limited floodplain management experience.
