South Pacific Division Commander Colonel Mike Wehr and FEMA Region IX Administrator Nancy Ward met Monday, August 8, to discuss progress and collaboration working with the states of California and Nevada to inventory levee conditions, and modernize floodplain maps and data bases.

The two federal agencies are working with local officials to improve citizens' understanding and response to flood risk. New studies and cooperation between federal, state and local agencies are rapidly providing communities, first responders, elected officials, and engineers a clearer picture of both hazards and opportunities to work together to reduce risk and improve emergency response.
