STATEWIDE PREVENTION, SAFE BURNING, AND FIREWISE OUTREACH February 11 

We need your feedback for direction on a multi-year project that the Division of Forestry Information Office is coordinating. Wildland Urban Interface Grant funding, provided by the US Forest Service, will be used to create statewide wildland fire-related Public Service Announcements (TV/Radio/Print) and a comprehensive Alaska Firewise webpage.

For us to consider your priorities for messaging, please take the survey at:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Wildland-Fire-Messaging-Outreach-Firewise 

*Note (this will make sense when you are taking the survey): for some questions you will find that when you prioritize a topic, numbers will auto-populate the remaining topics. You need to click on each number and will get a drop down list so that you can change it to reflect your priority for that individual topic. As you sort, your priority topics will move to the top of the list.

We encourage you to share the link with additional wildland-fire cooperators, fire departments, and fire personnel.  The survey must be taken by close-of-business on February 19, 2014.
