Self Rescue Model-SeReMo-A model to determine the effects of human behaviour and safety measures on the consequences of a hazardous material release-development of the new triage injury model and self-rescue for fire and explosion accidents
van der Horst, M.J.
Human behaviour during a large-scale hazardous material release can make the difference between life, serious injury and death. People may decide to investigate what is going on or to take shelter, while a toxic or flammable cloud is being released. The Self Rescue Model (SeReMo) has been developed to estimate the consequences of human behaviour on lethal and sublethal injuries for fire, explosion and toxic scenarios. Recent innovations in the Self Rescue Model are the translation of sublethal injury to a triage classification, that is used by medical emergency responders to determine the urgency of medical treatment of the victims of an accident. Furthermore, the abilities of self-rescue after exposure to fire and explosion events have been included in the model. © 2014 Taylor & Francis Group, London..
