July 28 (2-2:30pm) – Public Perception of Personal and Community Resiliency Before and After Natural or Man-made Disasters
As we are already in an active hurricane season, it is vital to ask if your community is ready for the next disaster. Communities in the Sunshine State are no strangers to a wide array of natural disasters including hurricanes, wildfires, and floods, not to mention potential man-made disasters, which can all have damaging impacts. Disasters affect not only the lives of families, but also the entire state economy. The Center for Public Issues Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources conducted research on the perceptions of community preparedness for when disaster might strike next.
In this month’s webinar session, Dr. Angie Lindsey, from the UF/IFAS PIE Center, will discuss public perception of personal and community readiness for the next natural or man-made disaster. More specifically, she will discuss how this public perception affects community resiliency before and after disasters. We hope you can join us for this 30-minute webinar session on Thursday, July 28, from 2:00 – 2:30pm.
Dr. Angie Lindsey, Assistant Professor, UF/IFAS Center for Public Issues Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources
