My research focuses on emergency management, particularly on the processes by which individuals and organizations prepare for and respond to natural and technological hazards. Research on individuals addresses risk perception, risk communication, and protective response--especially evacuation. Research on organizations emphasizes the conditions that influence the effectiveness of local emergency planning committees preparing for disasters and the effectiveness of Incident Command Systems and Incident Management Systems in guiding emergency response organizations.
