Protect communities with the FEMA National Risk Index in the Betterview platform. 


Betterview & FEMA


FEMA's National Risk Index is an online mapping application that presents a comprehensive view of community risk associated with 18 natural hazards. It provides interactive maps at both county and Census tract levels, displaying natural hazard risk metrics, projected annual losses, social vulnerability, and community resilience. This accessible GIS data allows users to gain a holistic understanding of hazard risks. 


Combine publicly sourced, community-level hazard data from FEMA with property-specific, AI-powered vulnerability data from Betterview. Empower underwriters, agents, and claims professionals to:

  • Understand & reduce the impact of catastrophic and severe weather events on communities 

  • Accelerate workflows with a granular, map-based view of community and property-level risk and resilience 

  • Communicate risk drivers to policyholders before disaster strikes

National Risk Index

The FEMA National Risk Index is a dataset and online tool to help illustrate the United States communities most at risk for 18 natural hazards, including coastal flooding, riverine flooding, hail, hurricane, and wildfire.  


The risk equation behind the Risk Index includes three components: a natural hazards component (Expected Annual Loss), a consequence enhancing component (Social Vulnerability), and a consequence reduction component (Community Resilience). 

With this data, you can discover a holistic view of community risk to natural hazards.
