Abstract

The AA. present a method for using microscopic traffic simulation to develop and test neighborhood evacuation plans in the urban-wildland interface. The method allows an analyst to map the subneighborhood variation in household evacuation travel times under various scenarios. A case study is presented for a controversial fire-prone canyon community east of Salt Lake City. GIS is used to map the spatial effects of a proposed second access road on household evacuation times
