Area of activity/subject: USAR assessment
Summary of the project: EASeR targets a specific aspect of USAR assessment called “barrier effect” during emergency interventions in response to natural catastrophes, especially earthquakes. The term “barrier effect” refers to obstacles due to a wide range of environmental factors such as: heavy snow, traffic due to damage to the road system, escaping in narrow/limited escape routes, road interruptions, non-coherent management of the information flow (dissemination of false/fake information, correct information not taken into consideration, missing basic information). These factors can severely hamper the general assessment in SAR as demonstrated by a direct experience of the USAR team of the Fire Dep. of Pisa in both national and international interventions. EASeR intends to provide a practical strategy to carry more efficiently the assessment in SAR with a positive cascade effect on the general performance of all subsequent operations.
