The Fairfax County Office of Environmental and Energy Coordination (OEEC) is pleased to announce the opening of an online public survey to assess climate vulnerabilities and risks within the community. This survey, which will remain open until 11:59 PM on July 2, 2021, is connected to the Resilient Fairfax initiative, a county-wide effort to increase the community’s overall resilience to climate impacts.
The survey asks respondents to share their personal experiences with climate impacts such as flooding, and preparedness for extreme weather and temperature events. Additionally, the survey seeks input from respondents on potentially vulnerable segments of the population and types of infrastructure within the county.
Findings from the survey will be published later this summer on the Resilient Fairfax public engagement page, and will help to inform the development of the county’s first-ever Climate Adaptation and Resilience Plan. Respondents may complete the survey in one of four languages: English, Korean, Spanish, or Vietnamese.
