Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyse training activities implemented to reduce risks related to natural or man-made dangerous events in an urban area. Evacuation contributes to reduce the exposure risk component; training activities and, in particular, exercises to test evacuation are focused. The principal aim of this work is to evaluate exposure risk reduction connected with the realization of specific training activities.
