3/27/2013 - HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. -- On March 29 the Air Force will launch the 2013 Community Assessment Survey for active duty servicemembers, spouses of active duty servicemembers, guardsmen, spouses of guardsmen, reservists, spouses of reservists and Department of Defense civilians. The survey will run through May.
This survey is the best way for Hanscom community members to make their needs known and opinions heard. The results will be used by base leaders and the Integrated Delivery System team to target resources where they are most needed and to enhance the well-being and resiliency of the base community.
The 2013 survey will be particularly important according to Don Gonsalves, Hanscom's primary survey point of contact. The community assessment, along with some supplemental questions, will be used to direct resources to help servicemembers and families base wide. Base agencies will be working with researchers to ensure that the survey results are used to maximum benefit.
Community members at Air Force bases worldwide will be randomly selected to participate in the study. A notification that includes a link to the web-based survey will be sent to the work email address of each active duty member, civilian, guardsmen and reservist selected to participate. Spouses selected to participate will receive a letter in the mail with the survey web link.
Survey responses can directly influence services and related support activities at local bases and throughout the Air Force. Results from previous Air Force community assessments have impacted the policies and programs that support families at every level of the Air Force.
According to Lisa Pizarro, Hanscom's survey marketing coordinator and alternate point of contact, participation is crucial to the success of the project and selected individuals are strongly urged to take part.
