PARSIPPANY, NJ - You can learn if your property is now in a high risk flood zone and if you need to purchase flood insurance.  There are map changes to FEMA's newly released preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and you can learn more at one of the two Open Houses that The Federal Emergency Management Agency in coordination with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection will be hosting.

The first Open House will be held on Nov. 8th in Parsippany and the second one will be on November 9th in Lincoln Park.

The Open Houses will provide residents with the opportunity to meet with experts one-on-one to learn more about their flood risk, get information on potential changes to flood insurance rates or requirements, and learn tips on how to mitigate and prepare for future floods.
