Abstract:

The report presents a methodology for evaluating local and state relocation plans under a criterion of minimizing expected economic disruptions caused by evacuation of metropolitan populations threatened by nuclear attack. The report considers national and, particularly, local economic disruptions which might be expected to hamper the evacuation effort, and presents a method for evaluating the extent to which local Civil Defense plans give attention to expected impacts and, consequently, might minimize the disruption caused by relocation. Finally, the report describes an evacuation planning process model, from the local to national level, designed to produce plans which maximize economic viability, particularly of local jurisdictions, during crisis relocation.
