Risk MAP Uses High Resolution Data and State-of-the-Art Modeling to Produce Flood Information for Utah Communities
Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning (Risk MAP) is the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Program that provides communities with flood information products, risk assessment tools and planning and outreach support. Each Risk MAP flood risk project is tailored to the needs of each community and may involve different products and services. The goal is to strengthen local ability to make informed decisions about reducing risk from flooding.
In Utah and most other states, FEMA uses partnerships to deliver high-quality mapping products, risk assessment tools, and planning and outreach support. Here in Utah, FEMA’s Coordinating Technical Partner is the Utah Division of Emergency Management (DEM). Utah’s Risk MAP program is actively collecting data and working with highly qualified engineers, counties and communities to create, update and digitize flood risk information all over the state.
