Take the Des Moines/King County Hazard Mitigation-Public Awareness Survey

A partnership of local governments and regional stakeholders in King County is working together to update the King County Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The purpose of this plan is to help local governments reduce the exposure of County residents to risks from natural hazards, such as earthquakes and floods. By writing this plan, local governments are able to apply to Federal programs that may provide money that can be used to reduce risks before and after natural disasters. This plan was first created in 2004 and was updated in 2009.

We need your help to plan for the possibility of future disasters. We would like to find projects that will help reduce or avoid impacts from natural hazard events. The following questions will help us measure how much local citizens already know about disaster related issues and will help us identify areas where we need to improve. The information you provide will help us organize activities and prioritize projects to reduce the risk of injury or damage to property from future hazard events.

To access the survey go to the City of Des Moines web site at www.desmoineswa.gov and click on “Surveys.” Or you can go directly to www.surveymonkey.com/r/JYFRVVH.

The survey consists of about 30 questions, and there is an opportunity to provide additional comments at the end. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete the survey and it is anonymous. When you have finished the survey, please click “Done” on the final page.

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