Brief online survey to help keep services running in event of flood, wildfire or earthquake

ORANGE – The Orange County Transportation Authority is continuing its efforts to ensure county residents, workers and visitors can keep moving even in the event of a natural disaster and is asking for public input to help in this ongoing effort.

OCTA’s Hazard Mitigation Plan is designed to support existing emergency and crisis management plans. Those who use OCTA services – including OC Bus, Metrolink commuter rail, OC Flex and OC ACCESS paratransit service – are asked to help update the plan by completing a brief survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HR85JM9.

The 13-question online survey is available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese and will be online through Friday, Jan. 8.

The valuable public input received will help OCTA better plan for how to keep services running in the event of natural disasters such as flooding, an earthquake or wildfire.

Completing the plan will also help OCTA qualify for federal funding opportunities that will allow for enhanced measures to prepare for such natural disasters.
