Daniel J. Klenow, NDSU professor emeritus of landscape architecture, disaster resilience and emergency management, recently had an article accepted for publication in the journal Sustainability.
The article, “Understanding Hurricane Evacuation Decision Making: A Case Study of Florida County Emergency Managers,” was co-authored with Sara Iman, University of New Hampshire, Yue Ge, University of Central Florida, Amanda Savitt, Argonne National Laboratory and Pamela Murray-Tuite, Clemson University. Professor Ge is a formed NDSU faculty member and Amanda Savitt received her doctorate in emergency management at NDSU.
This article presents data from a larger project funded by a $2,475,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to a multi-university collaboration including NDSU, Purdue University and Virginia Tech from 2015-2020. The article details the factors involved in decision making for hurricane evacuation in Florida and describes how random and fixed factors combine with processes such as planning, collaboration and information assessment to influence emergency managers in their deliberations.
