Different types of natural and man-made hazards cause significant losses of life and property every year. Evacuation is a widely used proactive action to reduce loss of life by moving threatened residents from the risk area to safer places during disasters. Incident commanders need to take into account the factors concerning the human, built, and natural environments before they make effective protective action recommendations.
Evacuation research plays a significant role in emergency management. The past decade has witnessed a paradigm shift in evacuation research characterized by system coupling and interdisciplinary collaboration. We aim to build a network for evacuation research through this session, and we welcome papers that are related to evacuation in different types of natural or man-made hazards (e.g., hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes, earthquakes, and earthquakes).
