A simulation tool has been developed under the European CRISMA project coordinated by VTT. The tool helps users to prepare for unexpected catastrophes and natural disasters. Pilot case in Finland focused on winter storms and the resulting power cuts and evacuations.
Modelling and simulation were used to assess various probable or fictional crises with immediate impacts on human lives and society, and the impact of various types of response and preparedness actions.
The tool was also used to simulate coastal flooding and submersion, earthquakes and the subsequent forest fires, chemical spills in inhabited areas and capacity management in the event of a catastrophe. The progress of coastal submersion in France, an earthquake in Italy, chemical spills in Israel, and catastrophe management in Germany were also simulated.
