Abstract or description

The main focus of POP-ALERT is in the preparation of societies and populations to cope with crises
and disasters in a rapid, effective and efficient way, by blending traditional crisis preparedness &
first-reaction strategies with the use of innovative contemporary tools. POP-ALERT has undertaken
a thorough desktop-based research and online survey examining population behaviour and attitudes
in preparation for, and reaction to, crises. This extends traditional Crisis Management research
through these empirical studies, which takes into account new issues related to targeting both local
populations and visitors such as expats or tourists (cultural differences, language barriers, etc.). This
research has been used in the creation of a framework to facilitate the assessment of the population’s
capacity to absorb, and preparedness to make use of, different crisis management strategies and
technologies developed at the EU level.
