In 2023, County and Tribal Emergency Managers across the State will be developing a Multiyear Integrated Preparedness Plan (IPP), which is a schedule of preparedness priorities. One of the ways emergency managers can identify these priorities is by conducting a survey. County Emergency Managers from Crawford, Grant, Green, Iowa, Lafayette, Richland and Vernon Counties, in partnership with Southwest Regional Planning Commission, came together and developed the Southwestern Wisconsin Integrated Preparedness Survey to better understand community preparedness needs. This Survey will be used to drive discussions in an upcoming workshop designed to assist in identifying threats, hazards, and risks. Once identified, the workshop will also work to develop preparedness priorities for addressing those risks and use the integrated preparedness cycle to build, sustain, and deliver capabilities aligned with the preparedness priorities.
The survey results and the information gathered from the upcoming preparedness workshop will used in the development of the IPP. The IPP is not limited to just training and exercises but is being developed to address potential gaps in response and recovery capabilities as well as to improve overall preparedness efforts across our County.
Richland County Emergency Management is requesting members of the community to participate and give their input on local preparedness priorities through a survey. The survey should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete and can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/IPPWsurveySWWI.
If you have any questions or need assistance with the survey, please feel free to reach out via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 608.647.8187. Richland County Emergency Management would like to thank you for being a part of our community’s preparedness, response, and recovery efforts.
