Crowd Management Effective #Communication
In case you face an unexpected threat at your event and your visitors need to be brought quickly into safety, it is of great importance that those visitors do exactly what you want them to do. A fast evacuation can save more lives. However, in real emergencies, people tend to respond slower than we might expect, causing a delay before they actually start to move to a safe place: the so called pre-evacuation time. When every second counts, it is crucial to minimize this delay. This can be achieved with effective communication. In my presentation I will discuss an evidence-based model that enables you to improve your emergency notification and communication strategies in order to reduce pre-evacuation time.
