1/27/2011 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss.  -- The Keesler Integrated Resource Team is urging the Keesler community to participate in the 2011 Community Assessment Survey of service members, spouses, reservists, spouses of reservists and civilians.

"This survey is the best way for Air Force community members to make their opinions and needs known," said Paula Tracy, KIRT chair and family advocacy outreach manager. " The results of the survey will be used by base leadership and the Air Force to target resources where they are most needed and enhance the well-being of the community.

Participation is crucial to the success of the project; so Ms. Tracy urges anyone selected to take part.

"The survey is the best way for us to listen to community members and then provide services to help them meet their needs and the needs of their families," Ms. Tracy explained. "It allows them to express their opinions anonymously so participants can respond openly and honestly to issues that affect them every day."

This year's survey at Keesler will be particularly important, according to Ms. Tracy. As part of a Department of Defense-sponsored initiative, this year's community assessment, along with some supplemental questions, will be used to direct additional resources to help service members and families base-wide. Keesler agencies will be working with researchers to ensure that this year's survey results are used to maximum benefit.
