Project background

Disasters, such as earthquakes and fires can have significant impacts on the affected population, including also loss of public or private heritage. In general, risks posed for vulnerable groups of population, such as people with disabilities, can be considered higher due to their susceptibility and usually their limited ability to protect themselves in case of a disaster. In that prospect, it is very important to improve preparedness taking into consideration most vulnerable groups. Evacuation planning of critical infrastructures in case of an earthquake or a fire is an issue that needs further elaboration.
