Columbia, SC (WOLO) — The South Carolina Emergency Management Division (SCEMD) is hoping to get your input on next year’s Hurricane Evacuation plan.

The department says the study will help them decide how South Carolina will plan and react to hurricanes. Officials say the answers they get from this survey will help them focus on specific areas where they can improve or rearrange how they operate during the hurricane season which runs through November 30.

The Department says in the past they have used survey’s to determine evacuation zones, fine tune timelines and figure out the best way to disseminate emergency information to residents statewide.

Anyone 18 years old and older who lives in or has real estate located in Coastal Carolina is strongly encouraged to take part in the survey. Whatever answers are obtained through the survey will remain anonymous.
