Abstract

In the process of actual fire rescue, the timeliness and success rate of fire rescues will be affected when only one lifeline system is considered and not considered the relationship among other lifeline systems. However, little research was paid attention to the relationship among different lifeline systems and the most of studies was focused on a single lifeline system. Therefore, it is important and significant to study on the interaction of different lifeline systems during the fire rescues. In this paper, a rescue model is built to evaluate the reliability of the effect of lifeline systems on the fire rescues. Many factors are considered including water system, traffic system, rescue workers, equipment and so on. The reliability of the influence factors are also presented. The reliability of fire rescue can be described and characterized efficiently by this model. © 2014 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
