Alabama Tornado Survivors Sought for Interviews

December 21, 2011

Public health agencies are looking to interview survivors of the killer tornadoes that hit north and central Alabama on April 27.

State Health Officer Don Williamson says the goal is to explore ways to lessen the loss of lives and property in future disasters. The state departments of Public Health and Mental Health are working on the project with the Centers for Disease Control.

They are asking storm survivors to call the state Department of Public Health at 1-855-228-3777 or enter their contact information online at the department’s website. Then they will be called back to schedule a phone interview of 20 to 30 minutes beginning Jan. 9.

Interviewers will be either Alabama college students or staff from the Centers for Disease Control.
