Public Outreach Survey

This is a public opinion survey, the results of which will inform local natural hazard mitigation planning in Placer County.  This survey is designed to obtain information about public perceptions and opinions regarding natural hazards in the county.  In addition, we would like information regarding the methods and techniques you prefer for reducing the risks and losses associated with identified hazards as well as how you would prefer to be informed regarding these hazards.  The information you provide will be used to help improve public/private coordination, mitigation, and risk reduction efforts in Placer County.

This survey is being conducted in conjunction with the 2015 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) Update currently underway in Placer County.  For more information on the LHMP Update or this survey, please contact YRodrigu@placer.ca.gov.
