The University of Delaware's Disaster Research Center has a team of experts who can discuss various issues as they relate to the wildfire that is rapidly spreading near the town of Paradise, in Northern California. Those topics include evacuation routes, household decision making, warning systems, recovery efforts and environmental safety post-event.

The group of experts includes co-directors Tricia Wachtendorf and Jim Kendra, both of whom have studied the aftermaths of major disasters including Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, tsunamis, earthquakes and the September 11 terrorist attacks.
