Our primary goal is to better understand how adaptive capacities such as communication efficacy during incidents relates to more disaster resilient communities. We have conducted field research in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, New Mexico, Washington, and Wyoming working with Type I Incident Management Teams, local cooperators, and other groups.
