In response to faux behavioral analyses.

In his “Foreword” to the undated “Glynn County Hurricane Plan” posted on the Glynn County website, Captain Jay Wiggins, Director of the Glynn County Emergency Management Agency, states that “This plan includes incorporating the lessons learned from . . . research studies on . . . behavioral analyses of attitudes toward evacuation.”

Having read and studied the “Glynn County Hurricane Plan”, I can find no reference to any “research studies on . . . behavioral analyses of attitudes toward evacuation” nor any statements regarding “attitudes toward evacuation”.

For that reason, I am asking you to please consider this a formal Georgia Open Records Act Request that I be provided a copy or copies of any research study or studies regarding “behavioral analyses of attitudes toward evacuation” on which Captain Wiggins or the author or authors of the “Glynn County Hurricane Plan” based the claim cited above, beginning with the words “This plan includes incorporating the lessons learned from . . .”

In the event that neither you nor any other responsible party within Glynn County government can provide the “research studies” alluded to, please inform me in writing that the aforementioned “Foreword” will be revised within three working days to delete reference to “behavioral analyses of attitudes toward evacuation”.

Sincerely,

Julian Smith
