Time sensitive – Request for help with promoting resident and partner participation in County surveys

Dear Partners in and Supporters of Health and Housing Needs in Jefferson County:

We are seeking your assistance with getting word out to as many Jeffco residents as possible about two very important surveys to guide prevention and COVID recovery work in our communities.

Input is being sought from Jefferson County residents through two on-line surveys that will support funding and programming decisions to address a wide variety of needs in our communities.  Participation in these surveys is open through July 28th, 2021.

Please share this information out via emails, newsletters, social media, etc., to anyone living in Jefferson County:

Community Needs Survey – will help the county prioritize use of funds from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 to address recovery from the pandemic, specifically for community members who’ve been hit the hardest. The survey is available in English and Spanish at this site:   www.jeffcocovidsurvey.com

Community Health and Wellbeing Survey – focuses on public health prevention services and policies that will help reduce the burden of substance use/abuse, food insecurity, community connectedness and other priority public health concerns that may have been impacted by COVID-19. The results from this survey will help shape Jefferson County Public Health’s future programming and community health policy efforts:

Community Health/Wellbeing Survey in English 

Community Health/Wellbeing Survey in Spanish

In addition to the language, above, which you can copy and use in an email to your networks, and to support your sharing efforts, we have created a suite of materials for social media posts which are attached to this email (sample messages for posting, as well as images).  We also have posters available in Spanish and English with QR codes linking to the two surveys that you may print and post in your agency waiting areas.

Finally, you’ll find a news release linked here which you can share with your networks as well.

Results from the surveys are expected late summer, 2021. If you your org/group is interested in accessing these survey results or has questions, please contact Donna Viverette at dviveret@jeffco.us.

Thank you for your support of community health, wellbeing and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic in Jefferson County!

CARE notification: JeffCo to test CodeRED system on March 5th

This article appeared in the Canyon Courier, 2/18/2014:

A test of the CodeRED emergency notification system will be conducted Wednesday, March 5, when a text, phone call or e-mail will be sent to every resident who is enrolled.  The testing should begin around 9AM and be completed by noon. Everyone who is registered with CodeRED and who lives in Jefferson and Broomfield counties, and parts of Adams and Clear Creek Counties, will be contacted.

CodeRED replaced the 911.net system and is used by emergency service providers to keep residents informed of incidents or crises.

If you’re not already signed up for this very important service, visit your911.net. If you’ve changed phone numbers or email addresses, update this information on the same site.
