The health department invites residents to participate in an online health and well-being survey survey on the effectiveness of outreach efforts concerning Hurricane Sandy. The survey can be found at www.camdencounty.com.
“In order to assess the assistance provided to individuals impacted by Hurricane Sandy and benefit our future emergency planning, we ask that you take a moment to participate in the brief survey,” Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez, liaison to the Camden County Health Department, said. “Although the hurricane did not hit Camden County as severely as other areas in the state, it is very important that we hear from everyone who was impacted by this super storm.”
Over 1,000 county residents registered to receive help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The health department is looking for other county residents who may not have contacted agencies for assistance for property damage because they were unaware, were faced with barriers or were overwhelmed at the time of the hurricane. Individuals who complete the confidential survey will not be contacted.
