Short summary
A simulation of the building collapses and street blockages that are most likely to occur in the event of the next major earthquake in the historic centre of Bucharest was conducted in order to evaluate their impact on the provision of disaster response and emergency services. It identified those areas where the accessibility impacts would be most severe. These results are of value to local policy makers and planners seeking to devise targeted and effective disaster response strategies.
