1. Survey Introduction

Page1 / 5
 
In response to Federal programs enabling the Samish Indian Nation to declare federal disaster declarations, and 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 Samish Indian Nation, industry, federal, state, county, and local governments are working together to develop the Samish Indian Nation 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 about disaster issues, and to find out from you about areas vulnerable to various types of natural disasters. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete, and 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 Samish Indian Nation and its Tribal Citizens.  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 David Strich, Emergency Management Specialist - Samish Indian Nation at (360) 208-7590.

The Samish Indian Nation Planning Team thanks you for taking the time to participate in this information-gathering process.
