The construction of earthquake disaster area involves a multitude of concerns, where safety considerations generally range primacy. During practical reconstruction planning, sometimes there are many schemes providing to expert, and many factors restrict the process of decision making. So this article regards the safety planning of earthquake reconstruction area as a multi-attribute group decision making process, applying group decision and fuzzy theory. This methodology integrates dynamically and interactively risk and deterministic safety analysis and deliberation processes. We discuss the application of this method for an instance. The results of this study indicate ways for how to consider more efficiently and effectively safety issues in safety planning of earthquake reconstruction area. This methodology can help infrastructure providers, spatial planners, and emergency responders and so on to converge their views on safety in reconstruction planning.
