Flood Management

Workshops & Training


The Department of Water Resources and FEMA conduct workshops for floodplain management agencies, including State and local officials. The workshops allow floodplain management officials to have a greater understanding of FEMA's minimum regulation requirements and how to meet them. The Department also organizes the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) Certified Floodplain Manager Exam at least twice a year.

As reference, DWR provides a link to FEMA's Emergency Management Institute (EMI).
