A planning partnership comprised of stakeholders from Mason County, its jurisdictions, local Native American Tribes, special purpose districts, private industry, federal, and  state governments are working together to develop the Mason County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan is developed in response to Federal programs that will enable the County and its participating jurisdictions to use pre- and post-disaster financial assistance to reduce the exposure of residents to risks associated with natural hazards.

In order to identify and plan for future natural disasters, we need your assistance. This questionnaire is designed to help us gather information from local citizens about disaster issues, and to find out from you about areas vulnerable to various types of natural disasters. The information you provide will help us coordinate activities to reduce the risk of injury or property damage in the future.

The survey consists of various questions related to the county, its jurisdictions and residents, and provides an opportunity for any additional comments at the end. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete and is anonymous, unless you decide to provide contact information. When you have finished the survey, please click "Done" on the final page.

The Mason County Planning Partnership thanks you for taking the time to participate in this information-gathering process.
