COVID-19 Contact Tracking Impacts Survey

The National Disaster Preparedness Training Center (NDPTC) and the Pacific Urban Resilience Lab (PURL) at the University of Hawaiʻi, supported by the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and community partners, conducts research and develops training courses for first responders and emergency managers. 

The NDPTC and partners conducted a survey in late March and received over 22,000 responses. Based on responses to the first version, the NDPTC updated the survey to include questions on the impacts of the pandemic on the community. See the attached NDPTC COVID-19 Contract Tracking Results for more information.
