Citizen perceived effectiveness of different responders
The results show that the strongest perceived effectiveness was assigned to the fire brigade, medical emergency services and civil protection, whereas less than half of the participants perceived the media and the local police to be effective or very effective in providing help in case of a disaster. The same picture is revealed for these authorities' respective trustworthiness in case of a disaster. However, there were slightly more participants who trusted the local police (42% trust or trust a lot), and the media were trusted least (only 33% trust or trust a lot).
