Lake County asks communities to take online natural-disaster-readiness survey
To assist Lake County in developing priorities to address potential natural hazards of its mitigation plan, all residents and property owners are encouraged to complete a short public survey available now through Oct. 1 at: www.surveymonkey.com/r/HSMTMRL.
Lake County considers public feedback and comments significant to the successful outcome of its All Natural Hazards Mitigation Program (ANHMP) update. Survey responses provided not only will help Lake County prioritize natural hazards that could impact residents and property owners, but also will help officials determine how to be better prepared for natural-hazard emergencies.
By spending a few minutes at the site, Lake County constituents will be contributing valuable information for regional safety standards. The brief survey asks each participant to identify community, village or city of residence, whether the household has experienced any natural disasters in the last 15 years, and whether those experiences include such events as floods, sewer backups, storms, drought and/or other natural disasters.
Residents also will have an opportunity to express what they consider to be the highest priorities for themselves, their families and their communities by checking off any of numerous categories. Lake County residents will be asked to rate their communities on natural hazard awareness and preparedness.
