Complete our Community Connection Questionnaire so we can better serve you.
- What is this questionnaire for? As Malden and Pine City rebuilding efforts and projects begin to become a reality we want to be sure that you and your family are connected and involved in ways that are meaningful to you. Your voice is important and we want to ensure that you are heard and that you participate as you wish. This information will help shape the Long Term Recovery Organization (LTRO). If you would like to talk with Scott Hokonson, Project Director, Long Term Recovery please email email@example.com.
- Who should take this questionnaire? We encourage all Malden and Pine City Residents, community partners, state and national agency partners to complete the questionnaire.
- What if I don’t want to answer a question? All questions are optional and any question may be skipped if you opt not to answer. It might take about 10 minutes to complete.
- We care about you! Thinking about the fire damage and recovery process may bring up difficult thoughts and memories. If you need someone to talk with, please call Washington Listens to just talk it through at 1(833) 681-0211.
