Service Description: Before Hurricane Sandy, FEMA had begun a coastal flood study to update Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and Flood Insurance Study (FIS) reports for portions of coastal New York and New Jersey using improved methods and data to better reflect coastal flood risk. After Sandy, FEMA released Advisory Base Flood Elevation (ABFE) maps for certain communities based on the partially completed flood study which were designed to help in rebuilding and recovery efforts. After the completion of the ABFE maps, FEMA released (and continues to release) preliminary work maps for certain communities which include the full results of the coastal flood study. Preliminary FIRMs and FIS reports, which will follow the release of the preliminary work maps for communities receiving those products, are also now in the process of being released. This Preliminary FIRM Data service allows users to view preliminary FIRM and FIS report data for Bergen Co., NJ. The data also includes hyperlinks to GIS data and PDF map panels and reports available through FEMA’s Map Service Center, the official source for preliminary and effective regulatory FIRMs, which can be accessed directly at Online tutorials are also available from FEMA which provide assistance in using both the FIRM and FIS Report. These tutorials can be accessed at
