Abstract : This report discusses various problems associated with warning and movement to shelter in the context of urban environments provided with public blast shelters. Data is presented on vertical distribution of the working population in two urban business centers dominated by high rise buildings, and on theoretical descent times for this population if a movement to shelter were to occur. Implications of blast protection requirements upon tactical warning concepts are suggested. (Author)
