Huntington Town Supervisor Frank Petrone is asking residents to take an online survey to help local and county officials re-examine their plans for dealing with natural disasters. The intent is to work with other nearby communities and Suffolk County to develop strategies to reduce losses caused by natural disasters.
I’ve taken the 21-question survey, and was generally impressed by how well it was constructed. The survey is designed to gauge how well informed county residents are about the natural hazards we face living on Eastern Long Island. It also asks for input on perceived areas of vulnerability. Petrone says survey results will help officials better determine what measures to take. Even reviewing the questions asked can be eye-opening.
