Curious: Exploring UO's Partnership For Disaster Resilience
Thousands of people in our region are getting a crash course in recovering from disaster. The Almeda fire alone destroyed more than 2,000 homes in Jackson County, forcing their former occupants to figure out a way ahead in the world.
Most of them have no experience in such things. Fortunately, lots of organizations do. Josh Bruce teaches at the University of Oregon and heads up the Oregon Partnership for Disaster Resilience based there.
He joins us to talk about the work and how it's already being used to help fire victims; this is this month's edition of Curious: Research Meets Radio, our partnership with UO.
