Emergency Response: The Science of How We Deal with Disasters Trailblazers with Walter Isaacson

    • Business

Since ancient times, humans have balanced the risks of settling in hazardous places with the benefits of the resources and opportunities they provide. Though we’ve created thriving communities all over the world, we’re still threatened by floods, fires, earthquakes and more. Thanks to climate change, these risks are expected to increase over time.

Over the centuries, many individuals and organizations responded to disaster with innovation. They changed how we build our cities, how we equip first responders and even how we predict disasters. Our approaches to emergency response evolve with information and ideas that help us save lives and prepare for what’s next.

Join host Walter Isaacson and guests as they uncover what forces led to today’s emergency response methods and what drives the innovations of tomorrow on this episode of Trailblazers.

Featuring Matthew Hannaford, Craig Fugate, Ahmad Wani, Robin Murphy and Sam Cossman.
