The Future Fix Podcast: Disaster data
- Date Updated: February 2020
The Future Fix is a collaboration between Evergreen and Spacing for the Community Solutions Network.
Evergreen released the sixth episode of the podcast series, The Future Fix: Solutions for Communities Across Canada! The Future Fix is a collaboration between Evergreen and Spacing for the Community Solutions Network that explores how data and tech are transforming communities across Canada. Each episode delves into an idea or innovation that seeks to address a community challenge – from disaster mitigation to broadband access to public transportation in the suburbs.
For some people, the key to forecasting, mitigating, and potentially even preventing disaster lies in good data. In this episode, Civic Tech Fredericton's Bernie Connors tells us how the River Watch app helps people in New Brunswick track annual flooding. We also hear from Josh Bowen, manager of the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology’s Centre for Applied Disaster and Emergency Management in Edmonton, about how we “live and die by data.”
