In this paper an approach using agents for handling the emergency route simulation is presented. It takes into account the problem Of uncharacteristic actions of an unsettled group of people in case of heavy stress given by a local disaster. The algorithm is all extension of the Boids Simulation method with additional rules to better accommodate the human crowd evacuation behavior.
