Working Group 6 - Mass evacuation
Effective planning is important to help to save human life and reduce suffering. WG 6 develops an ISO standard that gives guidelines for planning, establishing, implementing, monitoring, reviewing and improving preparedness for mass evacuation. This will provide a framework for mass evacuation planning for all-hazards and includes a process to systematically consider each activity during mass evacuation planning in order to develop plans that are evidence-based and that can be evaluated for effectiveness. The aim is to help governments to meet their obligation of saving human life and reducing suffering.
People with expertise in planning should join this project in order to provide us with their knowledge as well as it will be a learning experience for them to work with other experts in this field.
