Cooperating Technical Partner (CTP) Information Exchange
Online - Webinar
September 26, 2017
2:00pm - 3:00pm Eastern Time
The Cooperating Technical Partner Program is an innovative approach to creating partnerships between FEMA and participating NFIP communities, regional agencies, state agencies, tribes and universities that have the interest and capability to become active participants in the FEMA flood hazard mapping program. ASFPM has established a subcommittee of the Mapping and Engineering Standards Committee to support the Cooperating Technical Partner Program. This subcommittee is co-chaired by Thuy Patton with the Colorado Water Conservation Board and Carey Johnson with the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection. The goals are to help identify mechanisms to measure successes and share best practices among mapping partners. This web meeting is intended to help meet these goals.
NOAA’s National Weather Service provides weather, water and climate data, forecasts and warnings for the protection of life and property and enhancement of the national economy. Over the years, several CTPs have partnered with the NWS, the United States Geologic Survey and the United States Army Corps of Engineers to produce Flood Forecast Inundation Maps, to be used in conjunction with the NWS River Flood Forecast and Warnings to help communicate flood risk and hazard information.
Overview - For this webinar, NOAA NWS will provide an overview of the NOAA Partnered Federal Guidelines for Flood Inundation Mapping, describe key components of these Flood Forecast Inundation Maps, and the value of this mapping capability before, during and after a flood.
Rock River, WI Case Study - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (a CTP) will describe its role in collaborating with NWS, USACE and USGS to produce Flood Forecast Inundation Maps for Rock River. With these Flood Forecast Inundation Maps, NOAA’s NWS Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service serves as a one stop source for flood forecasts and warnings for Rock River communities.
