1. Survey Introduction

Page1 / 4

In response to Federal programs enabling the Quapaw Tribe of Oklahoma to use pre- and post- disaster financial assistance to reduce the exposure of risks associated with natural hazards, a planning partnership comprised of members from the Quapaw Tribe, industry, federal, state, county, and local governments are working together to develop the Quapaw Tribe Hazard Mitigation Plan.

In order to identify and plan for natural disasters, we need your assistance! The below questionnaire is designed to help us gather information from Tribal Members and 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 Tribal Planning Area (which collectively consists of lands owned by the Tribe in Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri, and the historic Reservation Boundary), and its Tribal Members.  The survey 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. Please take a few moments to answer the following questions to the best of your ability (you may not know the answers to all of the questions, and that is perfectly fine!). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the process for developing the Tribal Hazard Mitigation Plan, or this survey, please feel free to call Randy Jackson, Quapaw Tribal Fire Department, at 918.533.4359.

The Quapaw Tribe Planning Team thanks you for taking the time to participate in this information-gathering process.
