2021 Park Ranger Safety Survey Now Open - Suspense: 15 Sept 2021
I'm pleased to announce that the 2021 USACE Park Ranger Safety Survey will be open August
3rd through September 15th. All Park Rangers, Natural Resource Specialists, and Natural
Resource Managers (who wear the NRM uniform) and who work under the NRM program are
highly encouraged to participate in the annual USACE Park Ranger Safety Survey. The survey is
important for collecting feedback from the park ranger community to identify critical trends
concerning ranger and visitor safety and effective operation of the Visitor Assistance/Natural
Resources Management (NRM) program.
The survey takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes to complete and is available at: https://cfapps.mvr.usace.army
When you access the survey, select the email certificate when prompted. Even though it is
CAC enabled, the survey is anonymous and no personally identifiable information is captured.
Immediately following the survey are additional questions concerning homeless/transient
visitation, body armor and law enforcement support at your project. If, and only if, an employee
does not have a CAC or access to a USACE computer, paper copies of the surveys are available
on the main menu of the above link for employees. Individuals who complete the paper survey
should mail or fax the document to their representative on the Park Ranger Community of
Practice (CoP) Advisory Board. A list of the Advisory Board members is available at HERE
The Advisory Board is a grassroots organization consisting of 20 park rangers who directly
represent field NRM staff. The Board recognized that the earlier NRM surveys in 1995 and 2010
provided valuable insight into the evolution of the role of the Corps Park Ranger and the NRM
program, but that more timely data collected on an annual basis was required to diagnose
trends and stay relevant in a rapidly changing environment. Your feedback is important. Results
are being used to make recommendations and decisions within the program.
Program management POCs for this action are Chelsea Tyler Chair, Park Ranger CoP
Advisory Board at firstname.lastname@example.org; Justin Kerwin, Vice Chair,
email@example.com; and Heath Kruger, Senior Policy Advisor for Park Ranger
Activities at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the
above POCs or your division representatives on the Park Ranger Board.
Thank you for your participation in this survey!
