A Flood Insurance Study (FIS) is developed in conjunction with the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). The FIS contains a narrative of the flood history of a community and discusses the engineering methods used to develop the FIRMs. The study also contains flood profiles for studied flooding sources and can be used to determine Base Flood Elevations for some areas.
Technical and administrative support data associated with an FIS may be available by request from FEMA's Project Library or the FEMA Region 1 office in Boston.
