Flood Insurance Rate Map


The Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) is the official map of a community on which FEMA has delineated both the special hazard areas and the risk premium zones applicable to the community. For more information on FIRMs go to www.fema.gov/hazard/map/firm.shtm.

Beginning May 4, 2009 new Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) became effective. The new maps are a digital product, also known as DFIRMs. See the DFIRM Fact Sheet for more information or go to www.msc.fema.gov to view the new FIRMs.

NOTE: These maps are for reference only. To get an accurate flood zone determination, please contact the City of Novato Public Works Department directly by phone at (415) 899-8246, in person at 75 Rowland Way #200, or by email at pw@ci.novato.ca.us.
