Transfer of Facility Ownership ( with flood O&M ) – Required to notify, in writing, the new owner of the requirement to O&M flood insurance in property transfer documents. – Failure to notify shall result in a requirement to reimburse the Federal government.

8 Prepare + Prevent + Respond + Recover + Mitigate 8 FEMA PA Insurance Considerations Insurance Commissioners Certification ( ICC ) – Declaration that some portion of the O&M requirement is not reasonably available. – Protects past funding and may ensure future eligibility. – Apply when: o Not fully meeting all O&M insurance requirements OR o Multiple facilities are insured under any type of blanket policy. – Re-certify when: o Any of the same facilities are damaged in a subsequent FEMA PA disaster.
