Disaster Survivors

Colorado is no stranger to disasters. Every year, we become more familiar with wildfires, floods, tornadoes, and extreme storms; and more familiar with what it means to respond to and recover from these disasters.

To ensure that Colorado effectively addresses these frequent events, the State of Colorado, through a number of partnering agencies, have developed a Disaster Survivor Survey to better understand the experiences of individuals who have been affected by disasters.

Here is the link to access the survey.

Our goal is to have the shared experiences of disaster survivors serve as guidance to help the State best meet future disaster survivors’ needs and challenges. The key to accomplishing this goal is hearing the voice of those who have experienced the impacts of a disaster firsthand, like you. The feedback from recent disaster survivors will help the State understand what Colorado is doing well, and how to strengthen what we are doing.

The Disaster Survivor Survey is intended for survivors of disasters occurring between 2018 and 2024. The survey is completely voluntary, and should take less than 10-15 minutes to complete. The information from the survey will be shared with state agencies in a combined form in which you cannot be personally identified.

This survey will close on June 17th, 2024.

Please join your State in our efforts to enhance disaster response and recovery in Colorado.

We strive to ensure inclusive, accessible content that enables all individuals to engage fully. To request this content or survey in alternative formats, please email the State Recovery Task Force at cdps_dhsem_srtf@state.co.us
