1. Survey Introduction

Page1 / 5

A partnership of local governments and other stakeholders in Whitman County are working together to update the Whitman County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan was created in 2006 in response to Federal programs that enable the partnership to use pre- and post-disaster financial assistance to reduce the exposure of County residents to risks associated with natural hazards.

In order to identify and plan for future natural disasters, we need your assistance. This questionnaire is designed to help us gage the level of knowledge local citizens already have about natural disaster issues and to find out from local residents 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 34 questions plus an opportunity for any additional comments at the end. The survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete and is anonymous. When you have finished the survey, please click "Done" on the final page.

The Whitman County Hazard Mitigation Planning Partnership thanks you for taking the time to participate in this information-gathering process.
