The objective of this research initiative, Sea Grant's Coastal Storm Awareness Program (CSAP), is to better understand the current mechanisms used to disseminate and receive coastal storm hazard information, the information being conveyed (what, when, how, and by whom), the factors that affect whether recipients of this information decide to act on it, and the actions that these recipients take as a result. The goal of the program is to save lives and promote public safety by providing valid social science research and/or technology-based tools that could be used by the National Weather Service, Emergency Managers, the media and coastal communities in order to ensure that informed decisions are made by coastal residents during severe coastal storms. It is anticipated that the application of the funded research’s results will increase the likelihood that residents who should remove themselves from harm’s way actually do so or take other actions to prevent themselves from becoming storm casualties. Proposals funded under CSAP will focus on the coastal areas of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
