Excerpts from rrstar.com:

If you have been affected physically or mentally by the June 14 Chemtool fire in Rockton, the Winnebago County Health Department wants to know about it. County Health Department Administrator Sandra Martell is asking residents to complete a health impact survey in response to the fire. Individual information collected from the survey will be kept confidential, and nothing will be published that can identify individuals. 

The survey questions were developed and vetted by toxicologists, epidemiologists, and environmental scientists based on previous chemical fires as well as the Chemtool fire. Survey participants are asked where they were during the fire and how they may have been exposed, such as coming in contact with debris, the air or the water. The survey also asks if participants are experiencing any new or worsening physical or mental health symptoms, and, if so, if they received medical treatment.

The intent of the survey is to better understand the symptoms that people may have or still be experiencing. Data from the survey will be analyzed and aggregated to get a complete picture of what the impacts were to our community.

The survey, open to the public until July 15, takes about 15 minutes to complete and is being done in collaboration with the Illinois Department of Public Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.
