Business Recovery Survey (related to flood disaster)

Tennessee Dept. of Economic & Community Development and TEMA are conducting a survey to determine the damages to businesses related to the recent flood and winds. The data collected will be used in our efforts to help Tennessee business recover from losses from the disaster.

To participate in the survey, you may download a form from or call Hickman County Economic & Community Development Association at 729-5953 and I will record and submit your information. The survey is relatively simple, around a dozen questions.

I will be contacting those businesses that I know have been most affected, but feel free to participate in the survey even if your business was negatively affected by power, water, transportation and/or communications disruptions or other effects of the flood disaster.
