This primer is designed to assist emergency managers and transportation personnel in developing an evacuation plan that includes the coordination of transportation resources that meet the requirements of people with special needs. This document constitutes the third of a primer series entitled "Routes to Effective Evacuations." This primer focuses on special needs populations who require assistance during a local or multi-jurisdictional emergency evacuation.
