TMC Evacuation Support

Equipment Package: TMC Evacuation Support

Description: This equipment package supports development, coordination, and execution of special traffic management strategies during evacuation and subsequent reentry of a population in the vicinity of a disaster or major emergency. A traffic management strategy is developed based on anticipated demand, the capacity of the road network including access to and from the evacuation routes, and existing and forecast conditions. The strategy supports efficient evacuation and also protects and optimizes movement of response vehicles and other resources that are responding to the emergency. This equipment package coordinates the evacuation with the Traffic Management Subsystem (representing centers in other affected jurisdictions) and the Emergency Management Subsystem.
