ABSTRACT

LLIS Best Practice: Mass Evacuation Reception Planning: Resource Management Issues after a Nuclear Incident   [open pdf - 1MB]

"A nuclear incident in an urban area would likely cause a spontaneous mass evacuation from the incident area and its surrounding areas. Jurisdictions adjacent to the nuclear incident would become critical evacuation routes or destinations for the urban area's residents. As a result, receiving jurisdictions could experience a significant population surge after a nuclear incident in an urban area. This surge could quickly deplete the critical assets and resources of the receiving jurisdictions and overwhelm local emergency personnel before significant Federal and State assistance could arrive."
