People wanting to purchase flood insurance should contact their personal insurance carrier and request a National Flood Insurance Program policy. The program is managed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Mitigation Division. More information on the program can be found through FEMA, as well as a list of Tennessee communities that are participating in the program.
If you have any flood insurance-related questions about your community, please email Stan Harrison, regional director for the State Planning Offices in Tennessee, at (423) 434-6476. He is the state’s primary point of contact for the National Flood Insurance Program.
