Study on the Earthquake Emergency Behavior Patterns of County Governments

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 227)

Abstract

Current earthquake emergency response (EER) plans of county governments' in China obviously lack specificity and operability, which seriously affect not only their own level of implementation but also the overall level of the country. According to this problem, this paper first proposed a conceptual framework of “earthquake emergency behaviour patterns”. Then it put forward the method of how to determine the elements of the patterns. Then by using this framework, taking the county governments with serious disasters of Wenchuan earthquake, for example, through typical cases analysis and survey statistical analysis, the paper gives the whole picture of emergency behavior patterns and some overall laws. Finally, the main stage characteristics and critical time points of earthquake emergency disposal of county governments with serious disasters were obtained. The results show that use of the conceptual framework of “earthquake emergency behaviour patterns” can help to sort out the mass and cumbersome datum of the EER behavior, and can provide an effective means to dig EER experiences. The patterns obtained by this paper can provide a scientific basis on the level of the programs and promote their actual operability.
