About Elevation Certificates 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) defines elevation certificates as an official record that shows new buildings and substantial improvements are properly elevated in the SFHAs.  This elevation information shows compliance with the City’s floodplain ordinance.  The elevation certificate is developed by FEMA and is a tool that property owners can use to obtain flood insurance.  Elevation certificates must be prepared and certified by a Licensed Land Surveyor, Registered Professional Engineer, or architect to certify elevation information. The City of Roseburg is required to maintain copies of elevation certificates as part of our participation in the Community Rating System program.   

The latest version of the FEMA elevation certificate can be found on the fema.gov website
