Release Date: Dec 13, 2012
Halton Region wants to know what you think about Halton’s ability to respond to emergency situations. The Region’s latest Halton MVP (my ViewPoint) survey will run during the next several weeks. All new panelists who register to join Halton MVP by December 17, as well as all existing Halton MVP members who complete Halton’s survey about emergency preparedness will be entered into a draw to win an Emergency Go Kit*. Winners will be required to answer a skill-testing question to be eligible to receive the prize.
“Working with partners to ensure Halton Region is a disaster-resilient community, ready to deal with any potential, imminent or actual emergency is one of our Citizens’ Priorities,” said Regional Chair Gary Carr. “This MVP survey will provide a unique way for us to gauge whether our preparedness messages are reaching residents and allow residents to share their thoughts on Emergency Preparedness in Halton.”
The Halton MVP survey program offers an opportunity for citizens to electronically provide their feedback to Halton Regional Council and staff on a variety of Regional issues and initiatives including emergency preparedness, service optimization, waste management and more. Join the panel or find out more at www.halton.ca/MVP. Residents who join Halton MVP may be invited by email to participate in up to eight surveys each year. Registration is open to all residents of Halton Region (excluding employees of Halton Region) 18 years of age or older. Each panelist requires a unique email address.
To receive an email invitation to complete this survey, residents must join the panel at www.halton.ca/MVP by December 17 or must already be a member. The invitation to complete the Emergency Preparedness survey will be emailed to all members of Halton MVP later in December.
