What is Risk MAP? Contacts
The Risk MAP Program, standing for Risk Mapping Assessment and Planning, is the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) program that provides communities with flood information and tools they can use to enhance their mitigation planning efforts and take action to better prepare their citizens. Through more precise flood mapping products, risk assessment tools, and planning and outreach support, Risk MAP strengthens local ability to make informed decisions about reducing risk.

Know your Risk. Know your role. Take action.

Utah’s Risk MAP Program collaborates with state, tribal and local entities, to deliver quality data via mapping that increases public awareness and leads to action that reduces risk to life and property.
