1) The City of Wildwood provides advanced warning for flooding via the Code Red telephone notification system. Residents who do not already receive these warnings can register for them online at the City of Wildwood Emergency Management webpage at www.wildwoodnj.org. The City of Wildwood also provides warning with its siren system. Three long sirens will sound to notify residents of impending flooding. Flood warnings are also posted on the Emergency Management webpage, and on the City’s Facebook page.
2) Flood maps and flood protection references are available for viewing in the Construction Office at Wildwood City Hall, 4400 New Jersey Avenue. These include Wildwood’s past and current Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs); information, copies of, and advice on elevation certificates; and guidelines for coastal construction.
3) Officials in the City of Wildwood’s Construction Office can provide assistance and additional information on flood zones within the city, as well offer additional help and information when it comes to reading Wildwood’s Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM).
