Survey Introduction

A partnership of local governments and others stakeholders in Whitman County are working together to update the 2013 Whitman County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.  Scheduled for completion in 2020, the original plan was last updated in 2013 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 gauge 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 various questions plus 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. 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.
