DSHS to Survey Hale County Residents on Disaster Preparedness

The survey is to find out how prepared residents are in the case of a disaster like a tornado, wildfire, etc. According to Communications Specialist Roni Vowels, volunteers with safety vests and identification will be popping by groups of homes within Hale County between Oct. 19-21. Topics the surveyors plan to ask about include disaster preparedness, emergency response, water conservation, food safety, and mosquito prevention.

According to Vowels, the goal of the survey is to help Hale County leaders gauge how prepared the county is for a potential disaster and what steps those leaders can take to help improve readiness and save lives in an emergency.

Neighborhoods that are to going to be interviewed will be selected at random and the survey takes about 15 minutes. Participation is optional and the responses are confidential.

Anyone with questions about the survey can contact the Texas Department of State Health Services Lubbock office at 806-516-3250 or send an email to tricia.vowels@dshs.texas.gov.
