Do you know your flood risk?
FEMA and the NJDEP are hosting two Flood Risk Open Houses to provide Morris County residents with an opportunity to learn more about their updated flood maps, known as Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs). Community officials and FEMA representatives will be on hand to answer citizens’ questions about the maps, the mapping process, and flood insurance.
The Open Houses are scheduled for Wednesday, November 8th from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Publi...c Safety Training Academy Gymnasium located at 500 W. Hanover Avenue, Morristown, NJ 07960 and Thursday, November 9th from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Community Center located at 10 Boonton Turnpike Lincoln Park, NJ 07035.
During this time, residents can locate their property on the new maps and will have the chance to talk to members of the project team, flood insurance professionals, and state officials about what their home’s placement on the new maps means. If you already have flood insurance, please bring the policy and an elevation certificate, if you have one, to the event.
Flooding is the number one natural disaster in the United States. It is vital that property owners understand their risk and take advantage of the tools and programs available to them, including flood insurance. The FIRM and the associated Flood Insurance Study report are used by flood insurance companies to determine flood insurance requirements and costs.
You may also speak with a map specialist at the FEMA Flood Map Information eXchange (FMIX) at (877) 336-2627. Another source for information on the FEMA FIRM and other flood related topics can be found on the Morris County Planning Department website: https://planning.morriscountynj.gov/firms/.

Starting on Friday, October 13th (weather permitting), Chesapeake Bay Helicopters will be performing UV/IR patrols on the 500kV and 230kV and will also be performing Routine Patrols/Inspections on the 115kV lines in JCP&L.
Chesapeake Bay Helicopters will be patrolling JCP&L territory full time until the inspections are complete.
The patrols are estimated to take 7-10 days to complete and will be carried out by the following helicopters – please see the attached photos and f...ollowing information:
N90TJ – Black & Silver, Hughes MD500
N748CB – All-black Hughes MD500
A routine patrol/inspection is a general, overall look at the transmission line and associated hardware.
The helicopter will be traveling at speeds of 25-30mph and may at times hover over top of structures and/or spans of conductor to get a better look at any problems/issues found during patrols.
An infrared (UV/IR) patrol is similar to a routine patrol in terms of speed (20-30mph) but special equipment mounted on the bottom of the aircraft is used to get a detailed look at the conductor, insulators, shield wire, and their associated hardware through the infrared and ultraviolet spectrum.
It should be noted that the contractor has been authorized to patrol the transmission circuits in their entirety (i.e. "breaker-to-breaker"), so patrols on certain lines may therefore extend into the neighboring regions.
The flight crew provides information on their daily location to both Transmission Lines Maintenance and the FCC, and the pilot will be in communication with any local airports when in their airspace.
If you have any questions please contact your local JCP&L Area Manager.
Don't forget to take Montville Township Public Library's survey!!!
