Personal Preparedness Survey: 2009
Personal Preparedness In America: Findings From the 2009 Citizen Corps National Survey (Revised Dec 2009)
FEMA’s Citizen Corps Surveys offer comprehensive data on the public’s thoughts, perceptions, and behaviors related to preparedness and community safety for multiple types of hazards. Findings from these surveys provide valuable insights for increasing personal preparedness, civic engagement, and community resilience. These findings are particularly relevant as we prepare for a possible pandemic flu outbreak, hurricane season, and other hazards.
Results from this study have important implications for the development of more effective communication and outreach strategies to achieve greater levels of preparedness and participation.
