Don’t be surprised if you get a visit from the state Department of Health this Saturday.

Workers and volunteers be going door-to-door in McCully-Moiliili, Makiki-Lower Punchbowl, and Ala Moana-Kakaako from 9 a.m.-noon to conduct a survey. Participation is confidential and voluntary.

The survey, called Community Health Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response (CASPER), will help officials gain a clearer picture of possible public health needs in case of an emergency or disaster, and better shape response and recovery plans.

Residents can expect to see teams of two volunteers wearing DOH identification badges and carrying clipboards.

Results will be shared with the respective area neighborhood boards and state and county emergency management agency partners.

For more information, contact the Public Health Preparedness Branch at (808) 587-6569.
