Your Views Are Needed for an Emergency Service Survey
This message comes from the Delaware Department of Public Health:
DPH EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS SURVEY: Reaching you in a community emergency situation
Your opinion is important to us. The Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) wants your input to develop the most clear and effective ways to reach you in a community emergency situation.
Emergencies such as hurricanes, flooding, serious illness outbreaks, industrial accidents, and power outages mean that people need the most accurate and up-to-date information possible.
Would you take a moment to fill out the survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/2556XL8? The survey should take about 10 minutes.
We would also like to invite you to a focus group to hear your input on how we can reach you and your loved ones better.
Some questions that will be addressed include:
· If there is a disaster or community emergency, do you know what to do?
· If there is a disaster or community emergency, how do you find out?
· Do you get government notifications in a disaster or community emergency?
· How do you want to get your news during a disaster or community emergency?
The focus group dates, times, and locations are:
· Tuesday, April 18, 2017 at Henrietta Johnson Medical Center in Wilmington from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. with registration beginning at 11:30 a.m.
· Thursday, April 20, 2017 at Easter Seals Tunnell Center in Georgetown from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. with registration beginning at 11:30 a.m.
· Thursday, April 20, 2017 at Bayhealth Kent General Hospital in Dover from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. with registration beginning at 5:30 p.m.
A complimentary meal will be served. At the end of the event, we will raffle off a Deluxe Emergency Preparedness Kit.
If you are interested in participating or have questions, contact Cathleen Rossi at email@example.com or 302-223-1246 by March 31, 2017 for consideration.
Thank you for your time and willingness to help us secure a meaningful Emergency Public Information and Warning Plan for the State of Delaware and its residents.
