Researchers from UC Berkeley are surveying Ventura County residents who either evacuated or received an evacuation notice during the Thomas Fire. Their research is an effort to better understand the efficacy and the effects of evacuations and emergency notices. Two focus groups will be held August 25th and 26th at the E.P. Foster Library in Ventura.
Participants must have either evacuated or received an evacuation order during the Thomas Fire. Only one member per household may participate in either focus group.
Those that participate in the focus groups will receive a $100 Amazon gift card. To sign up or for more information regarding focus group eligibility requirements, go to https://berkeley.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5hCjzwSwSY28tKZ .
