FIRM released its 2019 Annual Report in April. The report provides an overview of the organization’s accomplishments in 2019.
Major achievements in 2019 included a continued freeze in Citizens Property Insurance residential wind insurance rate increases for Monroe County, participation by FIRM Board members on the Community Rating System (CRS) Program for Public Information (PPI), creation of a FEMA Flood Map Task Force and contract with Ransom Consulting Engineers to analyze FEMA’s mapping data, and the addition of a comprehensive flood map landing page on the FIRM website.
During the 2019 Legislative Session, Senator Anitere Flores introduced SB 1476 seeking to reduce the rate of Citizens allowed increase for Monroe County. FIRM’s officers traveled to Tallahassee to testify before the Senate Banking and Insurance in favor of the legislation.
