As COVID-19 doesn’t seem like the emergency it once was, officials with the City of Thunder Bay are debriefing and looking for feedback on how it responded to the global pandemic.

The city has launched an online survey and will host in-person focus groups next month.

“It’s really about continuous improvement for us,” said fire Chief Greg Hankkio, also a member of the city’s pandemic debrief committee. “We want to hear back from the public, we want to hear back from our staff, we want to hear back from those that were involved with the response or emergency response team, just to really get an objective view on how, as a municipality, we did.”

The survey will be available until Oct. 31 on the Get Involved Thunder Bay website. People can also sign up for focus group sessions there.
