Transportation Response Options: Scenarios of Infectious Disease, Biological Agents, Chemical, Biological, Radiological, or Nuclear Exposure

The objective of this research is to develop a Guide for state and local transportation officials to use to develop and communicate transportation response options within an incident management system. This Guide will be designed so transportation managers can clearly convey transportation-related options (opportunities and limitations) to mitigate population exposures and the spread of contamination, and to expedite effective response. This Guide will identify the potential positive actions of transportation, as well as unintended consequences of reactions to extreme events such as mass exposures to infectious diseases, biological agents, radiological, chemical, and other hazardous materials. Transportation issues, needs, and solutions are to be packaged so that transportation officials can effectively communicate these options through the incident command system.
