EVACUATION TIME ESTIMATE SURVEY
Every 10 years, when the census is completed, residents around the Beaver Valley Nuclear Power Plant are asked to fill out a survey of evacuation time estimate from the plant. The purpose of this survey is to identify local behavior during emergency situations. The information gathered in this survey will be shared with the Beaver, Columbiana, and Hancock County emergency officials to enhance emergency response plans in your area. Your responses will greatly contribute to local emergency preparedness. To help gather this important information, we are asking you to fill out the this survey. You do not provide your name or any personal information, and the survey will take less than 5 minutes to complete. Please only complete one survey per household. Also, since participation is vital, please consider forwarding the survey to others who live in the area or sharing on your Facebook pages.
