Geographers Study Effectiveness of Emergency Alert Systems

Drs. Bandana Kar and David Cochran, both associate professors of geography, are conducting important research in the most effective ways to communicate with people in the event of a natural disaster, such as a hurricane. “We’re focusing on identifying which technologies really worked and which don’t and if they all work which the local communities wanted to use,” Kar said. “The decision to act [leave their home] was based more on family and friends than on what the government agencies were telling them,” Cochran said.

The 4-year research project was funded by the Department of Homeland Security. For more information and an interview, click here.
