Welcome!

My name is Veronica Woodruff, I am part of a Master of Arts program at Royal Roads University. This survey is part of a regional research project in collaboration the Centre for Natural Hazard Research at Simon Fraser  University, and includes partnering academic institutions throughout the Cascadia Range.


This is part of a research project to discover the level of community understanding and preparedness for natural hazard risk events such as flood, forest fire and landslides. This research project includes survey, a workshop and targeted interviews. The results will be used to inform future research priorities and to support community emergency managers in planning for future events. 

 

This survey and is estimated to take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your participation in this survey is anonymous. All responses will be summarized in a final report that will be prepared for the public. At no time will any specific comments be attributed to any individual.

 

Completing this survey and clicking ‘done’ will constitute your informed consent.
