Natural Hazards Preparedness Survey
As a resident of Portugal, you are exposed to the risk of earthquakes, tsunami, wildfires, and other natural hazards. These can have disastrous effects, causing massive losses and damage. While practitioners, such as national authorities at all levels, and non-governmental organizations and associations, are working together to minimize the impacts of these risks, these efforts to build a more resilient society are limited if the local population is not aware of and involved in disaster risk management.  

In this survey, Safe Communities Portugal would like to learn about your concerns, level of preparedness, and ideas to become more educated and prepared for natural hazards. Please take a few minutes to fill in this survey and help us evaluate the readiness of residents of Portugal to reduce the impacts of natural hazards.
