The Real time evacuation Planning Model (RtePM, or “Route –P-M”) estimates the time required for evacuating vehicles to clear a user defined area for a variety of evacuation types.
The number of evacuating vehicles modeled and how quickly they are able to travel are determined using user assigned or modified variables, including the time of day when an evacuation starts, the rate at which evacuees leave, the percentage of the affected population that leave (participating rate), number of people per vehicle, etc., using functions provided within the model.
Independent verification and validation testing was conducted on RtePM for a variety of scenarios by DDL Omni Engineering. Testing determined that RtePM provides sufficiently accurate estimates of the time required for evacuating vehicles to clear an area to support its use for emergency management planning under the conditions modeled.
