Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) / Remapping Information
The Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) is an official map of a community on which FEMA has determined base flood elevations, flood zones and floodplain boundaries. These maps are revised periodically for communities who participate in the National Floodplain Insurance Program (NFIP). A revised FIRM for the City of Bismarck and portions of Burleigh County will be effective on August 4, 2014. A preliminary map showing the proposed changes is available for review. The 2014 FIRM will be available for review at FEMA's Map Service Center on August 4, 2014.
