A Transportation Guide for All Hazards Emergency Evacuation
EMForum.org is pleased to host a one hour presentation and interactive discussion Wednesday, September 25, 2013, beginning at 12:00 Noon Eastern time (please convert to your local time). Our topic will be a new report from the Transportation Research Board's National Cooperative Highway Research Program, (NCHRP) Report 740: A Transportation Guide for All-Hazards Emergency Evacuation. The report focuses on the transportation aspects of evacuation, particularly large-scale, multi-jurisdictional evacuation, and follows the basic planning steps of FEMA's CPG 101.
Our guest will be Deborah Matherly, AICP, Principal Investigator for the NCHRP report and Principal Planner with The Louis Berger Group, Inc. Ms. Matherly has been active on the National Academies Transportation Research Board (TRB) Emergency Evacuation Subcommittee since 2003.
Please make plans to join us, and see the Background Page for links to related resources and participant Instructions. On the day of the program, use the Webinar Login link not more than 30 minutes before the scheduled time. As always, please feel free to extend this invitation to your colleagues.
