Summit Seeking Public Input on Hazard Prevention

Written by

Summit County Executive Ilene Shapiro's office is circulating a survey to local residents and businesses, asking them for input to update the county's Hazard Prevention Plan. 

The 26-question Community Hazard Survey asks things like whether or not residents know if their home or office is vulnerable to floods, tornadoes, other natural disasters, power outages, and more. Furthermore, the surveys ask whether or not residents know the proper response to the previously mentioned disaster situations. 

So that we have a better understanding of what people know; if they know what the resources are, if they know how to take the steps that they need, in the event of a natural disaster," Summit County Assistant Chief of Staff Greta Johnson told the Jasen Sokol Show. "It is essentially asking for our community to help us help them." 

You can read and complete the survey here; it will be available through March 9th.
