PRINEVILLE, OR -- Crook County Public Health is surveying the community to determine the impacts of the drought the area has experienced over the past several years. It’s called a Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response, or “CASPER,” and is through a partnership with the Oregon Health Authority and CDC. It's only the third CASPER conducted in Oregon.


Tuesday and Wednesday, volunteers will conduct door to door surveys at pre-determined, randomly selected homes. They will not ask personal questions and addresses will remain anonymous. Headquarters for the project will be at the Crook County Library, and officials say anyone with questions, or who would like a better understanding for the project, is encouraged to stop by.


The data will be used by both the County Health Department Emergency Preparedness and County Emergency Manager to better understand the impacts of drought and to help serve the community more effectively in the future.
