Welcome to RiskMAP6.com
Thank you for visiting RiskMAP6.com. Risk MAP stands for Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning, which is a nationwide
program developed by FEMA to work together with States, Tribes, and local communities in building an understanding of a complete
picture of their natural hazard risk. An informed public is empowered to take actions to reduce their flood risk.
FEMA Region 6 covers a five state area: Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. Find out more about Risk MAP
and the Risk MAP Process Path for Region 6 through this website.
Also, sign up for our bi-annual FEMA Region 6 Risk MAP newsletter,
"The Voice", through this website.
Previous issues are also available under the Resources tab.
FEMA Region 6
Click your state for county/parish flood risk specific information.
If your community is currently involved in a Risk MAP study, information and status of the study may be found under the Communities: Know
the Risk tab. If Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) have been issued for your community, an interactive mapping portal will be
available from the community page. Share this flood risk information with others and encourage your community to take actions to mitigate
the threat of damage and loss of life.
The Risk MAP Vision
Through collaboration with State, Tribal, and local entities, Risk MAP delivers quality data that increases public awareness and leads to
action that reduces risk to life and property.
Through Risk MAP, FEMA provides information to enhance local mitigation plans, improve community risk awareness outreach, and increase
local resilience to flooding.
RiskMAP is ACTION-driven
Risk MAP is not map driven, it is ACTION-driven through community participation, adopting mitigation planning, communicating risk to citizens, implementing mitigation
actions to reduce risk, and utilizing mitigation plans to secure grant funding.
Even if your community is not currently in a Risk MAP study, this website has valuable information, resources and links to share
