Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
Public expectation of reliable, real-time information is constantly rising. This expectation puts increasing demands on organizations charged with monitoring hazardous events to provide this information to the public as quickly as possible, while still ensuring quality and accuracy of content.
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) has responded by augmenting existing information distribution mechanisms with new and varied methods for relaying natural hazard information. How these tools allow NRCan to distribute earthquake information to multiple levels of government, emergency measures organizations, news media and the public, will be discussed. In addition, interactive tools which allow the public to engage in the science of natural hazards being investigated by NRCan, are also explored.
