On February 26, 2016, FEMA began the process of updating Morris County Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) by releasing preliminary FIRM and Flood Insurance Studies (FIS). The adoption of these new maps will take 18-24 months.  Until the 2016 FIRM are formally adopted, the existing FIRMs will be in effect as the basis of flood insurance premiums/rates and floodplain regulations. FEMA is releasing the preliminary FIRM/FIS to provide local officials and property owners the opportunity for input early in the map adoption process. For more information and to view the preliminary FIRM/FIS please visit Morris County's website here.
