Volunteers in 31 neighborhoods this month conducting emergency preparedness survey

CASPER volunteers_what to look for

Churchill County and state emergency preparedness agencies have partnered to conduct a Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response, or CASPER, in Churchill County from Oct. 16 through 19. This survey will assess county residents’ general preparedness for emergency situations and give county leaders an idea of areas for improvement among the population.

Teams of volunteers will be knocking on doors throughout Churchill County Oct. 16 through 19 asking residents to complete brief surveys about household emergency preparedness. Volunteers will be dressed distinctly in green vests with “CASPER volunteer” labels and will be carrying blue and black bags labeled “CASPER.” 

Households to be surveyed have been selected at random so not every neighborhood will be surveyed and not every household within a neighborhood will be interviewed.

Please watch for volunteers in these general survey areas:

  • Stark Lane
  • Schurz Highway at Lazy Heart
  • Schurz Highway, north of Rawhide Road
  • North end of West Park St.Maine Street and E. Richards St.
  • Rambling Wind Drive
  • Beeghly Drive at Valley Drive
  • Manchester Circle
  • James and Bonnie Lanes
  • Whitaker Lane between Angela and Roberta Courts
  • Neighborhoods west of Venturacci Lane
  • Taylor St. and West Richards St.
  • Orchard and Cottonwood Drives
  • Boundary and Hicks Roads
  • North end of Bench Road
  • Neighborhoods on west side of Soda Lake Road
  • Soda Lake and Cox Roads
  • Area between Zephyr Lane and Sierra Way
  • South end of Roberson Lane
  • General area between Rice Road and Hillsboro Blvd. 
  • Cox Road between Soda Lake Road and Hillsboro Blvd.
  • Hawk and Robin Drives
  • Ryan Way and Steven Drive
  • General area west of Deer Trail
  • Portions of Solias Road
  • General area of Schindler and Solias Roads
  • Casey Road west of Bon Accord Lane
  • Rivers Edge Drive
  • Sheckler Road east of Strasdin Lane and south of Bottom Road
  • General area of the Onde Verde subdivision
  • South of Birch Lane and north of Sheckler Road

Participation is voluntary and residents can decline to participate at any time. The volunteers will not ask for any personal information such as names or place of birth. All survey responses will be kept confidential. 

Upon completion of the survey, households will be given emergency preparedness information and tools.

For more information on the CASPER survey, please call Emily Gould, project manager at (775)684-3216.
