Natural disasters are an enormous, and often unpredictable, risk to a community. As part of the Strategic Alliance for Risk Reduction II (STARR II), we’ve been working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to help communities across the United States mitigate this risk.
Our team has performed FEMA flood studies covering over 150,000 riverine and coastal miles for more than 30 years. Using our expertise in topographic data development, hydrologic and hydraulic (H&H) studies, coastal flood-risk analysis, geographic information systems (GIS), and regulatory compliance procedures, we develop regulatory and other flood-risk communication products for communities to help mitigate their risk. We also provide program management and technical support to FEMA Headquarters, Regional offices, and State Partners.
Collaborating in nearly every state and on island territories, we bring together over 150 floodplain experts with invaluable experience on FEMA programs and strategies. Our collective work enables communities to plan in advance for natural disasters and recover quickly afterwards. By providing ongoing support and expertise, we’re helping to build a more resilient nation.
