Emergency Generator Survey data collection 80% complete
You may complete the online survey at https://webapp03.dhss.mo.gov/snapwebhost/surveylogin.asp?k=134426740643.
In a situation where electricity is disrupted it is helpful for emergency planners to know which nursing homes have back-up generators and perhaps more importantly, which do not have back-up generators. This web-based survey asks whether you have an emergency generator (or not), its fuel type, your ability to connect a temporary generator and other data helpful in an emergency situation. This data can be valuable to DHSS and your local emergency planners in their preparedness plans, but the data collection is not yet complete. If you have not completed the generator survey, please help us by doing so now. At the end of the survey, you will have an opportunity to “opt out” of sharing this data with other emergency preparedness agencies if you prefer.
Please remember that since different levels of care may be housed in different buildings or may have different electrical service, we need a separate survey for each licensed level of care. Also, if you have had a significant change in your generator set-up since completing the survey, or if you do not remember if you completed the survey, please contact Melissa Hope, Planner II, at (573) 522-1333 or send an email to Melissa.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your participation in this effort.
