UHHA: A framework for emergency management in chemical accidents

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientific

Abstract

Despite the vast amount of information available concerning natural and man-made accidents, rescue forces are generally not able to use the existing information efficiently in their decision making. The purpose of the UHHA project was to create a framework for an emergency management system that collects practical data from an emergency situation, merges the data in order to get a better overall view of the situation, and sends the analysed information to the rescue services and other decision makers, and other actors and stakeholders. The results show that it is possible to provide real-time information for emergencies' management by combining chemical measurements with dispersion and population modelling. This paper describes the principles of behind the UHHA concept.
