1. Lehigh Valley Hazard Mitigation - Citizen Survey

25% of survey complete.

CITIZEN PREPAREDNESS QUESTIONNAIRE - A regional planning partnership of municipalities, agencies and stakeholders has recently been established to address natural hazards that may occur in the Lehigh Valley (Northampton and Lehigh Counties). A steering committee has been selected to oversee this process. In order to identify and plan for future natural disasters, we need assistance from Lehigh Valley residents. This questionnaire is designed to gauge the level of knowledge local citizens have about natural-disaster issues and areas vulnerable in your community to any type of natural disaster. The information you provide will help coordinate activities to reduce the risk of injury or property damage in the future.

You will be asked if your home is located in a floodplain. If you do not know, or are not sure, please check the following sources:

This survey consists of 22 questions and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
