Evacuating an entire metropolitan area in anticipation of or in response to a natural or man-made disaster takes an enormous amount of planning and coordination. This volume provides an overview of disaster planning and evacuation procedures. It examines the role of operation research models and explores business continuity planning as a critical segment of disaster planning. The authors discuss the use of risk analysis to determine the impact of disasters on businesses and populations, and highlight the role of information technology in planning for and managing disasters. Case studies of the recent evacuations in New Orleans and Houston further illuminate the material.
