In natural and man-made disasters, people have a much higher rate of survival when they are informed about what is happening. To inform people does not only mean to send out a message, but to send it out in time (usually as fast as possible) and sending it in an understandable way. Also, a warning message should be distributed through different media channels, so that the coverage is as large as possible. The EU-FP7 research project Alert4All investigate the optimal alerting methods for disasters, and will combine state-of-the-art information and communication technology, decentralized information sourcing through social media, and the simulation of human behaviour. The expected result of this project will provide information about a better alignment of alert procedures and processes to crises in a scalable manner, from a regional to an European perspective. This paper presents our approach towards modelling human behaviour related to alerting the population.
