Abstract

This paper focuses attention on emergency management associated with incidental scenarios characterized by high time evolution. The approach of dynamic geoevents for risk management, described in the work, can be used also when it is not possible to identify the point where the event occurs, such as a terrorist action involving the transport of hazardous materials. Concerning terrorist actions, since it is not possible to predict where and when an attack will occur it is only possible to identify the critical points for potential actions where countermeasures must be applied [1, 2]. In the case of incidents which evolve relatively slowly, mitigation actions can be applied. Though the use of dynamic geoevents is possible the immediate location of the event on a georeferenced map and to have a dynamic evolution of the scenario and of the number of people involved. The procedure for the creation of dynamic geoevents has recently been defined using the output of a consequence simulation code and a GIS software [3]. Some consequence simulation software, available in commerce, permit the constructions of dynamic scenarios. This work compares the results of the application of the procedure of dynamic geoevent and those of software for consequence assessment. The aims of the work are the validation of the GIS procedure and the verification of its efficiency in emergency management.
