The primary focus of this book is to demonstrate results of the international BeSeCu (BeSeCu stands for Behaviour, Security and Culture) project on human responses to emergencies and disasters - a project that followed an interdisciplinary research approach, incorporating disciplines such as the social sciences, health sciences, mathematical and computer sciences. However, this book will also highlight collaboration beyond these disciplines, i.e. the scientific view on human responses is complemented by the perspectives of the fire and medical services since these are important groups of first responders involved in such incidents.
