EVACUATION LIAISON TEAM
George Schoene U.S. DOT - FHWA
2
Consensus during Floyd We did not know what
was coming our way from our neighbors
3
Purpose of theEvacuation Liaison Team
  • Facilitate information exchange between states
  • Provide FEMA and USDOT Headquarters with timely
    and accurate information

4
Duties of the Evacuation Liaison Team
  • Collect evacuation and transportation data from
    states
  • Compile data into information
  • Share the information with the states

5
Evacuation Liaison Team Membership
  • U.S. DOT
  • FEMA
  • U.S. ACE
  • State EM and DOT contacts

6
Evacuation Travel Demand Forecasting Model (TDFM)
  • Web based GIS tool to run on Windows Explorer
  • Requires three inputs for each county
  • Storm evacuation category, tourist occupancy,
    participation rate
  • Additional inputs - traffic counts, directional
    number of lanes
  • Distributes evacuees among pre-determined
    destinations based on hurricane evacuation
    studies
  • Traffic volumes and updates not real-time, by
    design in this version of the model

Findings from the Table-Top Exercise
  • The ELT concept was successful
  • The TDFM improved communication among the states
    and ROC
  • The TDFM gave a reasonable idea of the likely
    state to state traffic volumes

10
Next Steps for the ETDFM
  • Inclusion of coastal states from Texas to
    Delaware
  • Inclusion of all threatened counties and major
    evacuation routes
  • Identification of major incidents along the
    evacuation routes

Field Operational Test Transportation
Operations and Emergency Management during
Hurricanes
  • Integrated Information
  • Traffic surveillance data
  • Weather
  • Evacuation status
  • Emergency management information
  • (transportation related)
  • Link multiple agencies
  • Multi-state coordination
  • Traveler information
