The Western HEPC is conducting a survey that will be available until the end of the month (March 31st, 2022). I am aware that there is still the EMSC survey out there that I am sure some of you may still need to complete. While it is true that these surveys are voluntary, they do allow your voice to be heard. Attached is the information on this survey and the PDF showing the questions before hand is also attached. I encourage ALL EMS leadership to complete the survey. For those of you that are not leadership in your agency, please encourage the same from your leadership please. This is valuable information, even if you do not see any impact from the results immediately. Thanks –
The link below is to the Western Region Health Emergency Preparedness Coalition (HEPC) Survey. This survey is designed to collect gaps we have in the region.
The survey is designed to be anonymous but we are looking for what sector you are in and if you are based in Western New York or the Finger Lakes or both.
We have attached a PDF of the survey for those that prefer to review the survey before completing it. Some of the survey features are lost on paper.
We will be closing this survey on March 31. Please let your voice be heard. This will be our guide for the next couple of years. The data will be shared with our partners at DHSES to coordinate training, meetings, speakers, and exercises. The results will be shared at our next meeting on June 7, 2022.
Feel free to share with link with anyone whose voice should be heard.
