In Washington, we lead floodplain management, monitor coastal erosion, and help prepare communities for flooding and sea level rise. We provide technical assistance to local communities to reduce losses to life and property, and protect the natural environmental functions and values these landscapes provide.
We work together with the Federal Agency Management Agency (FEMA) to run the Risk MAP (Mapping, Assessment, and Planning) program in Washington. We give local communities the tools and expertise to better understand their natural disaster risks.
Reducing risk to life and property
By using FEMA’s Risk MAP program we help Washington communities better protect themselves from natural disasters. We provide technical assistance to local communities to help them better plan within their valleys and coastlines.
