Evacuations can occur for many different reasons, but they all have the same objective: to save lives. The most effective way of accomplishing this goal is to utilize all the available resources and plan thoroughly for how to handle situations that necessitate an evacuation. Chemical hazards and fires both routinely merit evacuations, and in this project the procedures for evacuations under these conditions will be modeled and analyzed in order to make the evacuation process more efficient.
