Do you remember post-tropical storm Arthur? The July 2014 extreme weather event left 195,000 households without power for as much as a few days to two weeks because winds of 100 km/hour and heavy rain knocked down trees and power lines.
How did you experience post-tropical storm Arthur? Did you lose power, have enough food, or get to know your neighbours for the first time? Did you have issues with trees? Are you satisfied with how your community, NB Power and other first responders dealt with this extreme weather event? What have you done since post-tropical storm Arthur to be more prepared for the next extreme event?
The Conservation Council of New Brunswick (CCNB) is conducting research to learn more about how communities get things done. In this case, we are studying the capacity of communities to solve problems and create opportunities, including their capacity to respond to extreme weather events like post-tropical storm Arthur.
Telling us your story implies your consent for us to use your data in our study. Your responses, however, will be completely confidential and anonymous. None of your responses will ever be attributed to you. We are interested in the community as a whole, rather than individual views.
Thank you for sharing your story. Your contribution is critical to our ability to better understand community capacity to adapt to climate change. If you have any concerns or have questions you may also contact the project’s research supervisor, Louise Comeau at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 506-458-8747. This project has been funded by the Intact Foundation.
