Community Assessment teams go door-to-door

Community volunteers will be in a neighborhood near you starting next week

Volunteers in 31 neighborhoods this month conducting emergency preparedness survey — Survey taken in-person at 200+ county homes Oct. 16 through 19

Churchill County and state emergency preparedness agencies have partnered to conduct a Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response, or CASPER, in Churchill County from Oct. 16 through 19. This survey will assess county residents’ general preparedness for emergency situations and give county leaders an idea of areas for improvement among the population.

Teams of volunteers will be knocking on doors throughout Churchill County Oct. 16 through 19 asking residents to complete brief surveys about household emergency preparedness. Volunteers will be dressed distinctly in green vests with “CASPER volunteer” labels and will be carrying blue and black bags labeled “CASPER.”

Households to be surveyed have been selected at random, so not every neighborhood will be surveyed and not every household within a neighborhood will be interviewed.

Please watch for volunteers in these general survey areas:

  • Stark Lane
  • Schurz Highway at Lazy Heart
  • Schurz Highway, north of Rawhide Road
  • North end of West Park St.
  • Maine Street and E. Richards St.

Upon completion of the survey, households will be given emergency preparedness information and tools.
