Discounted Flood Insurance Available to Fremont Residents

Flood Map

The City of Fremont has been a member of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) since 1983. Through its membership, Fremont has adopted and enforced a floodplain management ordinance to reduce flood risks for properties within Special Flood Hazard Areas. In turn, NFIP provides opportunities to purchase flood insurance for participating communities which would otherwise be unavailable to property owners.

In addition to participating in NFIP, Fremont is also part of a voluntary program called Community Rating System (CRS). Due to Fremont’s high CRS rating, NFIP provides community members with a 15 percent discount on flood insurance policies within the Special Flood Hazard Area and a 5 percent discount for other policies.

To learn more about flood insurance, Special Flood Hazard Areas, or the benefits of the NFIP, please visit FEMA’s website or the City’s Flood info website. You can access the FEMA maps on the GIS database. For additional information including basic Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) information, problems not shown on the FIRM, flood depth data, special flood related hazards, and historical flood information, please contact the City’s Engineering Division by e-mail or 510-494-4718.

For those who cannot access the online system, the City of Fremont Development Services Center, located at 39550 Liberty St., will continue to maintain copies of Letters of Map Change and Elevation Certificates.
