Flood Zone Information

As a public service, the Town of Bristol will provide you with the following information upon request:

      • Whether a property appears to be in or out of the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) as shown on the current Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) of the Town.
      • Additional flood insurance data for a site, such as the FIRM zone and the base flood elevation or depth, if shown on the FIRM.
      • Flood insurance purchase requirement handout to help people who need a mortgage or loan for a property in the SFHA.
      • Copies of completed Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Elevation Certificates for buildings built in the floodplain since 2004; and, for some buildings completed prior to that, as well.

If you would like to make an inquiry, please provide us with the street address and, if available, the Assessor’s Plat and Lot Number. There is no charge for this service.
