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 scenarios.
The Real time evacuation Planning Model (RtePM, or “Route-P-M”) is an evacuation simulation created to provide quick and accurate estimates of the time required for vehicles to evacuate a user-defined area. RtePM is an Internet hosted tool that can be used to model evacuations anywhere in the United States. It can be used for both natural and man-made disasters, including hurricanes, wildfires, radiological disasters (e.g. nuclear power plant accidents), or terrorist incidents.
