Carson McPherson-Krutsky (M.S., defending May 2016) and Rebecca Bendick have teamed up to create an online natural hazard information tool for the Missoula area. It provides the most up-to-date information location-by-location (either map click, smartphone location, or address) about the most common regional hazards including storms, wildfires, landslides, earthquakes, and floods. It also serves information about how to prepare for events, historical records and photos, and available emergency services. The goal of this tool is to help both visitors and residents to accurately evaluate their risk and then take appropriate measures to mitigate it.
