The City of Alamogordo participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The NFIP makes federally backed flood insurance available for most buildings, whether they are in a flood plain or not. Flood insurance covers direct losses caused by surface flooding, including an arroyo flowing over its banks, and local drainage problems.
