Participate in Important Resilience Research!

The University of South Florida and affiliated researchers, including faculty at FGCU, are studying household responses to hurricane information and evacuation decisions, particularly regarding Hurricane Ian. The team is collecting data from our SWFL residents on preparedness measures, risk perception, and evacuation decision-making in response to Hurricane Ian. Responses collected will be added and compared to six years worth of metrics from communities affected by prior hurricanes impacting the U.S. mainland coastal states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Results are expected to improve future communication through education, outreach, messaging, and resources during future hurricane seasons.


The survey takes approximately 10-15 minutes and may be accessed HERE
