Flood Insurance Rate Map Zone Information
As a public service, Dorchester County will provide you with the following information upon request:
- Whether a property is in or out of the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) as shown on the current Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) of the County.
- Additional flood insurance data for a site, such as the Firm zone and the base flood elevation or depth, if shown on the FIRM.
- We have a handout on the flood insurance purchase requirement that can help people who need a mortgage or loan for a property in the SFHA.
If you would like to make an inquiry, please contact us between 8:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday - Friday at 843-832-0087 or 843-563-0087 and provide the street address and tax map number (TMS) of the property. There is no charge for this service.
