Yakima County communities have experienced several natural and human-caused disasters in recent years – landslides, flooding, smoke from wildfires, and of course the COVID-19 pandemic. To better protect and serve our community, Yakima County communities are working on an update to our Hazard Mitigation Plan. The plan will include a strategy to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from disasters.
As a part of this effort, community members are invited to take a Community Disaster Preparedness Survey. This survey will help the planning committee to understand your experiences with disasters, potential impacts, and the current preparedness of your household and the community as a whole.
The survey should only take about 5-7 minutes to complete. Your input will help to Yakima Valley Emergency Management better serve our community members. You can access the survey at https://survey.alchemer.com/s3/6797381/Yakima-County-Mitigation.
