5.7.4: Provide Evacuation Coordination

This process provides the medium in which coordination between multiple agencies and other ITS functions can develop an evacuation plan. This coordination often involves agencies outside of the local jurisdictions managed in the emergency and incident management functions. Based on the status reports of the evacuation situation that is being shared with involved agencies, this process allows multiple agencies to modify existing preplanned evacuation plans along with current plans being implemented due to the most recent information regarding the emergency which requires the evacuation and the current conditions of the transportation infrastructure. The resulting evacuation plan contains both exit and reentry plans and schedules for the evacuation area. The plan is also forwarded to the manage evacuation function for implementation. In the case of emergency evacuation situations involving biological, chemical, or other medically hazardous agents, this process shall communicate with the Public Health System to determine the best course of action, including how far to evacuate the public and when they should be allowed back.
