By taking a brief survey, you can help UC ANR colleagues on the fire team to better understand the wildfire-related needs of Californians. While taking the survey, you'll also learn tips for protecting your home from wildfire.
The new group of Cooperative Extension fire professionals is interested in learning about the concerns of the communities and professionals already working to address these issues. Results from this survey will enhance our ability to partner with residents, landowners, agencies, academics, and other organizations to reduce California's vulnerability to wildfires.
They are asking adult residents and natural resource professionals in California to complete this survey (https://bit.ly/UCCE_Fire_Survey) by March 31.
By filling out this survey, you will help the team develop educational resources and workshops about wildfire preparedness and guide scientific research aimed at helping communities and professionals deal with wildfire risks and impacts.
This survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your participation in the survey is voluntary and your answers are anonymous. If you share your contact information in the survey, it will not be connected to your answers unless you wish to be contacted for a follow-up interview.
