FIRMette

A section of a flood insurance rate map (FIRM) developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that can be created online by selecting the desired area from an image of a FIRM. The FIRMette also includes the map title block, north arrow, and scale bar. Like the FIRM, the FIRMette can be used in many aspects of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), including floodplain management, flood insurance, and enrollment of mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements. Online FIRMettes are the simplest way to see a flood map for a specific location. See also Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map; Flood coverage; Flood exclusion; Flood insurance rate map; National Flood Insurance Program.
