Alternate Title: Riley County, Kansas DFIRM

This document is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Best Practices Portfolio. The Best Practices Portfolio is a collection of true stories about people and communities who have experienced disasters, and what mitigation they used to survive, rebuild, and prepare for disasters. From the document: "Riley County, Kansas which contains the City of Manhattan, is creating a countywide Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM). As part of their participation in the Cooperative Technical Partner (CTP) initiative, the county is taking advantage of several concurrent revisions in the county and incorporated areas within the county to convert from multiple hard-copy single jurisdiction FIRMs to a single countywide DFIRM." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
