|Abstract: ||This study is intended to elucidate the impact of the
experience of risk on emotions and coping strategies following
an unexpected fire. It looked at residents of the Island of
Madeira, where a highly destructive fire had recently occurred.
Two groups were compared (people who had been affected
directly by the fire event and others who had not) in order to
study their risk perception, emotions and coping strategies, and
to explore the variables that might contribute to explaining
each group’s coping strategies.
The results showed that people affected directly by the fire
reported higher levels of active coping strategies, such as
analysis and prevention. Women displayed higher levels of
fear and less use of active coping strategies. The results also
revealed that anger, local identity and fire experience predicted
both analysis and prevention forms of coping.
However, coping delegation was only predicted by local identity,
and coping denial just by fear.|
