Our study for Motorola Solutions, the 2023 Natural Disaster and Severe Weather Preparedness Survey, which captured sentiments from 1,000 United States citizens, was released in May. The study found that the number of natural disasters is on the rise in recent years, with one notable impact being that 66% of the public report that they have missed work, and 40% say that they have been unable to get necessities (food, water, gas, etc.) due to natural disasters. Despite these setbacks, respondents still have faith in emergency responders. An overwhelming majority (93%) of respondents say emergency responders are somewhat prepared, prepared or extremely prepared to help them/their communities in the event of a natural disaster.
