Study on Unconventional Emergency Scenario Design: Taking Life-Rescuing of Dongfang Turbine Co., Ltd. in Wenchuan Earthquake for Example

Zhiying ZHANG, Lei XIAO, Hecheng ZHANG, Shiming LI


Unconventional emergencies have attracted widespread concern in academic field due to its high uncertainty, huge destructiveness and complex management, and studies on unconventional emergencies shall change from “prediction-response” to “scenario-response”. By taking the life-rescuing of Dongfang Turbine Co., Ltd. in Wenchuan Earthquake for example, this paper divides scenarios in accordance with the specific investigations, and proposes several considerations about the unconventional emergency scenario study.
