3/1/2011 - YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan -- Randomly selected members of Yokota are invited to participate in the 2011 Community Assessment Survey currently being conducted throughout the Air Force. Officials have extended the survey through April 3.

According to the survey's official website, more than 350,000 active-duty members, Reservists and spouses, as well as all appropriated fund civilian employees were randomly selected to participate in the voluntary survey. Those selected anonymously began receiving an e-mail invitation Jan. 30 to participate in the survey.

Officials also stated the secure notice is being sent from the consulting firm ICF International and addressed from AFCASurvey@icfi.com and spouses were mailed a postcard. The survey takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete.

This survey is designed to assist the Airman and Family Readiness Center, Family Advocacy program, Health and Wellness Center, Mental Health Center, family member programs, and chaplains in assessing community results and improving services to better meet the needs of servicemembers and their families, said Col. Fred Stone, 374th Medical Group deputy commander.

"The survey gives real-time information and allows agencies to improve services that meet the needs of the community of Yokota. It is conducted every two years and supplies information on a number of issues that no other Air Force survey provides .

"The results are compiled and briefed to Air Force and 374th Airlift Wing senior leaders and can result in significant changes to Air Force policy. If Airmen want to change the Air Force, this is one of the best ways to do it," said Colonel Stone.

"A few results here at Yokota from past surveys include added playgrounds, extended hours of the Fitness Center, and culture and finance classes for military spouses," added the colonel.

For more information on the survey, call commercial (800) 506-0098 or e-mail AFCASurvey@icfi.com.

"The 2011 Community Assessment Survey provides community members a wonderful opportunity to improve the Air Force community. We hope those selected will do everything they can to respond to the survey as quickly as possible," Colonel Stone said.
