Free course on FEMA’s Elevation Certificates

The state of Hawai‘i, Department of Land and Natural Resources and FEMA RIX will co-sponsor a free course on Elevation Certificates (ECs) at the Community Meeting Hale, West Hawai‘i Civic Center on February, 29 from 8:00 a.m. to noon.

Conducted by Sarah Owen with FEMA RIX, the course will include various uses of the EC by lenders, insurance brokers, land surveyors, architects, and engineers, federal, state, and county government.  The interactive course will also involve participants in discussions, completing the form correctly, and covering the ten building diagrams for base flood and floor elevations.  The most common error received by Hawai‘i County Floodplain Manager are wrong base flood elevations.

EC is a requirement of Chapter 27, pertaining to the Floodplain Management in the Hawai‘i County Code for building, electrical, plumbing and sign permit applications for Special Flood Hazard Areas.
