EVA – Do people actually Panic?

The gathering of information, news articals and reports to assist in planning.

“Extreme Value Analysis (EVA) is simply a method of estimating the probability of a rare event. It is perhaps best known for its application in meteorology where it is used to predict the likelihood of extreme weather conditions such as heavy rain maximum frost penetration or extreme wind conditions. The method is also used in engineering to predict the possible failure rate of a mechanical system. A wider application to crowd safety planning was used by Brian Toft (1990) in his thesis, A failure of hindsight, to support his argument that crowd related accidents should not be treated as unavoidable acts of god but more likely a failure of risk analysis.”

Panic

Ignore the titles, this is what the videos have been called by the persons posting them, you have to look beyond that.

Is there thought in what these people are doing? Do they have a goal and trying to achieve this quickly. Some of the footage is of life threatening situations, so preservation of life is at stake.

Some of these scenes can be upsetting and graphic.
