Planning emergency in historical centres: from vulnerability to the definition of urban risk maps

  • Silvia Santarelli UNIVERSITA' POLITECNICA DELLE MARCHE

Abstract

Historical centres are high-risk scenarios for evacuees during earthquake emergency. Herein,
the preventive identification of criticalities concerning the emergency paths is important to
preserve evacuees’ and rescuers’ safety and design effective risk mitigation solutions. This
study proposes new indices for the quick evaluation of paths’ vulnerability and of possible
debris amounts blocking the evacuation paths within the historical centre. Furthermore, starting
from the obtained indices, the study produces probabilistic risk maps of the centre useful
before and after emergency to plan the safe paths for evacuees and rescuers, design emergency
operations and resource allocation.
