The aim of the cross-cultural BeSeCu project is to investigate human behaviour in emergencies and disasters in order to better tailor security-related communications, instructions and procedures with a view to improving evacuation and, ultimately, safety. The project will provide evidence that will be useful to first responders, building designers and those involved in the development of emergency operating procedures for buildings.
