Automated flood insurance determination letter available online
On August 18, 2014 a new Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) prepared by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) went into effect for all of Broward County.
The FIRM is used to make flood zone determinations for all properties within Broward County. Flood zone determinations are utilized by insurance carriers to set flood insurance premiums.
The City of Plantation Information Technology and Engineering departments have developed an online tool to make it easy for property owners in Plantation to research their property and obtain a printed flood zone determination letter from the convenience of their home or business.
Visit Plantation.org, which will direct you to an interactive GIS map of Plantation. Follow the prompts to obtain your flood zone determination today!
For property owners without access to a computer, please contact the Engineering Department at (954) 797-2282 for a flood zone determination.
