The First Horizon Foundation has awarded a $5,000 grant to Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe (FIRM) to support the continuation of FIRM’s FEMA Flood Map Task Force project.

The grant underwrites some of FIRM’s contracting costs with consultants to collect and review the data FEMA has used to prepare the new flood maps.  The grant will also help FIRM keep the community informed about the flood mapping process.

In explaining why the review of the data is necessary, FIRM President Mel Montagne stated, “While FIRM supports updating the flood maps to better understand our risk, it is crucial that the risk is not overstated.” Montagne continued, “The grant from First Horizon Foundation will help us ensure that the residents of Monroe County have the most accurate flood maps possible.”
