Firm Index Map  (extracted from FIRM Map Index Map Number 24009CIND0A, effective July 18, 2011)  Due to the size of the FIRM maps, each map has been divided into map sections (NOTE TO USER, the map itself, and other map components).  The "NOTE TO USER" was extracted from the map and offered immediately below as text to facilitate reading.  

In addition to the Index Map shown below, there are three panels (links above) for the Chesapeake Beach area; Northeast FIRM (shown below as Panel 24009C0083F), Southeast FIRM (Panel 24009C0091F), and Waterfront FIRM (Panel 24009C0084F).


Future revisions to this FIRM Index will only be issued to communities that are located on FIRM panels being revised. This FIRM Index therefore remains valid for FIRM panels dated July 18, 2011 or earlier. Please refer to the "MOST RECENT FIRM PANEL DATE" column in the Listing of Communities table to determine the most recent FIRM index date for each community.

This FIRM Index displays the map date for each FIRM panel at the time this Index was printed. Because this Index may not be distributed to unaffected communities in subsequent revisions, users may determine the current map date for each FIRM panel by visiting the FEMA Map Service Center (MSC) website at
or by calling the Map Service Center at 1-800-358-9616.

Communities annexing land on adjacent FIRM panels must obtain a current copy of the adjacent panel as well as the current FIRM Index. These may be ordered directly from the Map Service Center at the number listed above.

Flood elevations on this map are referenced to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988. These flood elevations must be compared to structure and ground elevations referenced to the same datum. For information regarding conversion between the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 and the North American Vertical Datum of 1988, contact the National Geodetic Survey at the following address:
