    FEMA Region VII, ISO, Nebraska Department of Natural Resources, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, IFSMA, and NeFSMA are please to offer a FREE course about the Community Rating System (CRS), a nationwide initiative of FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). It describes activities eligible for credit under the CRS, how a community applies, and how a community modifies an application to improve its classification.

    Please note: All participants must have an understanding of the NFIP and floodplain management principles. The course material will be difficult to follow without a participant being well-versed in basic concepts of floodplain management. It is suggested that participants be a Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM), or have completed the E273: Managing Floodplain Development Through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) course, or be a Floodplain Administrator with more than 2 years of floodplain management experience.

    Contact Amanda Gowans, CFM at to register.

    The Nebraska Silver Jackets with assistance from NeFSMA will be hosting a free event, Flood Response Workshop and Lessons Learned, on July 10, 2019 at the Kimmel Orchard & Vineyard Education Foundation, 5985 G Road, Nebraska City, NE.

    Click here for the agenda.

    The Silver Jackets are collaborative state-led interagency teams, continuously working together to reduce flood risk at the state level. Through the Silver Jackets program, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, additional federal, state and sometimes local and Tribal agencies provide a unified approach to addressing a state's priorities. Often, no single agency has the complete solution, but each may have one or more pieces to contribute. The Silver Jackets team is the forum where all relevant agencies come together with the state to collaboratively plan and implement that interagency solution. Through partnerships, Silver Jackets optimizes the multi-agency utilization of federal resources by leveraging state/ local/ Tribal resources, including data/information, talent and funding, and preventing duplication of effort.
