Thank you for clicking on our community survey!

Natural hazards are a common and frequent occurrence in Hood River County. We take this issue seriously.

Your participation in this survey will help us to better prioritize actions to help the county minimize or avoid disaster losses. Survey results will be incorporated into the Hood River County Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan, which will identify risks associated with natural disasters and develop long-term damage reduction strategies. This survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete.

Thank you for your help!
