Flood Damage Prevention
Protecting Your Property 
Flood damage prevention has been a responsibility of the City of McAlester since the Oklahoma State Legislature required local governmental units to adopt regulations designed to minimize flood losses. The City of McAlester’s participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) gives the City regulatory jurisdiction over flood hazard areas of the City to promote public health, safety, and general welfare. This is accomplished by minimizing public and private losses due to flood conditions in specific areas identified in the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) which is provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

More information can be found in the City of McAlester Land Development Code which is chapter 62, article V, division four, “Flood Hazard Overlay District and Flood Damage Prevention,” of the City’s Code of Ordinances.
