Abstract:

Advance planning for effective response to transportation emergencies was the topic of TRB Conference Session 82 at the 1983 Annual Meeting. This report summarizes topics discussed and is organized according to common themes covered by each speaker. A definition of transportation emergency is an extraordinary event that causes congestion, delay, confusion, and/or general disruption of one or more transport modes. The role of advance planning is discussed, along with the conclusion that the responsibility falls within the political base of the community with a legislative mandate necessary to establish command and control functions. Effective response is generally related to the type of incident expected to occur; to be identified are lines of authority and communication channels. Disaster response exercises are a key component of advanced planning. Among benefits attributable to advanced planning are reduced delays to travelers, faster medical attention, shorter disruption in area transportation, energy savings, and improved coordination among involved agencies and the private sector. Improved coordination is the least quantifiable, but perhaps the most substantial of benefits.
