What is Flood Preparedness?

If your property is in or near an area subject to flooding, the following information may be of interest to you. This information is offered by the City of Deltona (the City) to help protect your property and to potentially reduce property losses due to flooding. The City is dedicated to assisting our residents and businesses to reduce the hazardous effects of flooding in our community with efforts that are in keeping with those established on a national basis through FEMA.

Residents living outside of Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHA) are encouraged to stay educated on the most current FEMA and local regulations concerning floodplain management, as well as have the opportunity to purchase SFHA-oriented insurance coverage. This information is designed to provide guidance to resources available for those with property within or near areas of flooding or have one of the four repetitive loss properties in the City. The repetitive loss properties have either been flooded repeatedly, had flood waters encroach onto their property frequently, or are in or near a flood zone that has a high incidence of flooding.
