Take the Survey

This survey questionnaire provides an opportunity for residents to share their opinions and participate in the hazard mitigation planning process, which is a requirement of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). All residents in Hardin County are invited to participate.

The questionnaire should only take about 10 minutes to complete. All responses will be kept confidential, and participation is strictly voluntary. 
For a hard copy version of the plan, please contact Hardin County Emergency Management at (641) 939-8132.
“Residents’ input and feedback will enable our office to better serve the County before, during, and after an emergency or disaster,” said Roxane Warnell, Hardin County Emergency Management Coordinator. “We want to know what hazards residents are concerned about and identify the services the community needs during a disaster.” 

Residents are asked to complete the survey by July 20th, 2017.


The purpose of hazard mitigation planning is to identify policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce risk and future losses. Mitigation forms the foundation for a community's long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses and break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage.
