ELK RIVER -- The Sherburne County Sheriff wants to make residents aware of a survey they are conducting in the county.

Sheriff Joel Brott says they've hired a firm from Boston, Massachusetts to conduct an all-hazards evacuation planning survey.

First market Research will be calling Sherburne County residents weekdays between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. and weekends between 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.

No personal questions will be asked, but the survey will include questions like how long is your commute and how many vehicles are available in case of an evacuation.

The county will use the survey to develop traffic strategies in case of an evacuation.
