INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Department of Homeland Security wants to gauge how prepared state residents are for emergencies and disasters through an online survey.
The survey taking about 10 minutes to complete can be found on the IDHS website at www.in.gov/dhs under the Featured Topics Section: "IDHS Citizen Preparedness Survey 2013." The survey will stay open until at least Sept. 20, 2013.
The agency says individual responses will be seen only by its staff.
It says the survey will help Indiana's public safety community gain a greater understanding of how prepared residents are and how to increase that preparedness.
Those who participate can enter a contest to win a free all hazards/weather radio.
The survey was last conducted in 2011.
