Abstract

The areas with high wildfire risk of wildfire are inhabited by multiple ethnic groups in China. In the event of a wildfire, there are many challenges for the government to release evacuation information to residents in multi-ethnic communities. Based on the Shannon-Weaver model of communication, a whole-process communication model of evacuation information is constructed to reflect the challenges during the whole process, including the dynamic variability, regional difference and cross-language expression of evacuation information at the stage of information generation, the inadequate communication capability of information carriers and instability of communication infrastructures at the stage of information transmission, and comprehension impairment and irrational perception at the stage of information perception. In response to these challenges, the authors also make some suggestions from the intelligent information technology, crisis response system and offline communication channels.
