resource image

This poll looks at local efforts to build resilience with older adults (over 65) and those with diverse needs* living in Alberta. The poll is open to community leaders with an interest in fostering disaster-resilient communities, including: 

  • Community groups that work with seniors and those with diverse needs.
  • NGO Council of Alberta members.
  • Local Family and Community Support Services staff.
  • Directors of Emergency Management and staff.
  • Directors of Emergency Social Services and staff.

We want to learn about:

  • Attitudes toward the biannual test of the National Alerting System.
  • Interest in using the test alert as a public education opportunity. 
  • Current and/or future efforts to educate and encourage preparedness action with older adults and those with diverse needs
