In early November of 2013 FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) provided Old Orchard Beach with copies of the new Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM). In April of 2017 revised Preliminary maps were released.
FEMA conducted a coastal study and generated these new preliminary FIRMs with updated flood hazard risk information and flood zone boundaries. These preliminary FIRMs are available for viewing at the Planning and Code Enforcement Office at Old Orchard Beach Town Hall as well as on the Town’s website using our on-line GIS mapping system.
