Identification of a Response and Rescue Network for the St. Louis Region

In the event an earthquake hits the New Madrid Fault there could be significant damage in the St. Louis region. Not only is it important to plan for evacuation of the residents but you also need to have a plan for how to get workers into the city for emergency response activities. Compounding the issue is the fact that there could be damage to bridges with the potential of collapse and bottlenecked roadways. The objective of this project would be to develop a list or routes and details on how to evacuate affected individuals and routes and directions for emergency response workers. A list of bridges that would need to be blocked due to susceptibility of collapse would also be part of the deliverables.
