How does a community earn its rating?
A community accrues points to improve its CRS Class rating and can receive increasingly higher discounts. Points are awarded for engaging in any of 19 creditable activities, organized under four categories:
- Public information
- Mapping and regulations
- Flood damage reduction
- Warning and response.
Formulas and adjustment factors are used to calculate credit points for each activity. Thurston County must update its Flood Hazards Mitigation Plan every five years to maintain its distinctive rating.
