Door-to-door Survey in South County for Community Emergency Preparedness

Do you live in South County? Participate in the door-to-door survey on community emergency preparedness April 24 to April 26, 2024.

The County of Santa Clara Public Health Department is conducting a door-to-door survey in Gilroy, San Martin, and Morgan Hill from April 24 to 26, 2024.  The goal of the survey is to better understand the community’s thoughts and knowledge on climate change, extreme weather events, and emergency preparedness. Surveyors will NOT ask participants for personal information such as name or date of birth, nor will they ask for any form of identification.  

This survey is known as a Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response (CASPER), developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 210 households will be randomly selected to participate. The survey will be conducted in English, Spanish, or the resident’s preferred language.  

Teams of surveyors will be wearing identifying badges and vests. If your home is visited, please consider answering the survey, as your participation helps better understand important community needs. Information that is collected is protected and is not connected to any specific individual or household when it is shared back to the community. Participants are not being compensated for their involvement in this survey.  

The results of this survey will inform future emergency response and other public health actions including educational activities, communication, and reducing barriers to resources. The final report will be shared with the community.
