RAPID: Collaborative Research: Examining Household Movements and Evacuation Decision-Making in a Compounding Risk Event (open access)

RAPID: Collaborative Research: Examining Household Movements and Evacuation Decision-Making in a Compounding Risk Event

Data management plan for the grant "RAPID: Collaborative Research: Examining Household Movements and Evacuation Decision-Making in a Compounding Risk Event." The purpose of this Grants for Rapid Response Research (RAPID) collaborative project is to examine household protective action decisions during two simultaneous events: Hurricane Ida and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Time-sensitive data gathered through online, phone, and mail surveys and supplemented with GPS/mobile phone data will be used to examine household protective action decision-making and mobility patterns before, during, and after Hurricane Ida. The findings from this project are expected to save lives and minimize stress during evacuations and return trips. Additionally, the findings of the research will benefit the emergency management community and society as new knowledge related to protective action decisions during simultaneous hazard events can help maximize safety and efficiency in coordinating and managing the movements of displaced residents.

Collaborative Research: Place Attachment in Mitigation and Recovery: A Mixed Methods Study of Residential Adjustment Following Wildfires (open access)

Collaborative Research: Place Attachment in Mitigation and Recovery: A Mixed Methods Study of Residential Adjustment Following Wildfires

Data management plan for the grant, "Collaborative Research: Place Attachment in Mitigation and Recovery: A Mixed Methods Study of Residential Adjustment Following Wildfires." This study focuses on understanding how place attachment influences the decisions people make after disasters, specifically residential decisions about where they live and whether they invest in measures that reduce their risk to future disasters. Using three California counties as study sites, and building on a pilot study in these same, wildfire-affected communities, the research team uses photovoice method and phenomenological analyses to develop a deep, contextually grounded understanding of the role of place attachment in residential decisions.
