Hillsborough County Wants to Know How Ready You Are

Are you ready for hurricane season? Hillsborough County wants to know residents' concerns and challenges as the 2020 storm season gets underway.

The Hillsborough County Hurricane Preparedness anonymous survey is offered in English and Spanish and will measure respondents' attitudes about a variety of factors related to hurricane season and disaster preparedness. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), this year is expected to be 40% more active than past storm seasons, and coinciding with the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, residents will need to prepare now more than ever before.

County officials will use information from the survey as they continue preparations for hurricane season in Hillsborough County. The data will be analyzed based upon a number of factors, including demographic and geographic information, to gain perspectives that reflect the County's diverse makeup. The survey is open to all residents of Hillsborough County, including Tampa, Temple Terrace, and Plant City.
