FEMA flood certificate

In the FEMA publication “Floodproofing of Non-Residential Structures,” floodproofing is described as a combination of adjustments and/or additions of features to buildings that eliminate or reduce the potential for flood damage. Before a floodproofed building is designed, numerous planning considerations, including flood warning time, uses of the building, mode of entry to and exit from the building and the site in general, floodwater velocities, flood depths, debris impact potential, and flood frequency, must be addressed to ensure that dry floodproofing will be a viable floodplain management tool. These critical considerations are discussed within this bulletin.
