Purpose of the Survey

PRR, in collaboration with the Seattle Office of Emergency Management (OEM), conducted research to:
•Measure the level of awareness and need for preparing for disasters with new and standardized measures for use in future surveys.
•Measure the level of preparedness for the residents of Seattle and the effectiveness of public education programs to educate and motivate people to take action to prepare.
•Compare the survey results to previous studies to determine if the level of awareness and preparedness has changed.
•Determine if there has been change in how people in Seattle receive their information and who influences them to take action.
•Identify if there are trends for particular demographics.
•Identify barriers to preparedness and compare to other research to see if there are new barriers that need to be considered in developing outreach campaigns or programs.
The results of the survey will be used to inform OEM future communication/outreach efforts to further improve the disaster preparedness of Seattle citizens

I have attached the results for us to see. This was sponsored by the Seattle Office of Emergency Managment (OEM)
