ISC CONDUCTS PREPAREDNESS SURVEY THAT ACHIEVED 95% CONFIDENCE
SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA
ISC conducted a community preparedness and resiliency survey of San Diego County residents in order to determine how well County residents, to include populations of access and functional needs individuals, are prepared for a disaster or an emergency. The survey was designed to solicit information concerning the level of and importance attached to disaster planning, previous disaster and emergency experience, attitudes about future disasters, the level of their personal preparedness, knowledge about safety procedures, and familiarization with current emergency alert, warning, and notification technology.
The methodology used resulted in the distribution of 60,000 surveys and generated results that ensured a 95% confidence level and less than a 3% margin of error. The results were shared with the public through various press conferences during the 2017 wildfire season.
