Researchers want to know your missile scare experience

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The National Disaster Preparedness Training Center is inviting the public to participate in a survey about residents' experiences and behaviors during January's false missile scare.

Researchers want to examine the public's perception and attitude towards the Emergency Alert System. They also want to see how people use social media for sharing information during emergencies and disasters.

Through the survey results and follow-up interviews, the researchers hope to be able to assess the experience of the general public to the ballistic missile alert and also help to build a case study on the use of social media in these types of situations.

The voluntary survey takes about 20 minutes.
