This project developed regionally inclusive evacuation maps that take into account conditions that would initiate evacuation flow out of the area, and conditions that might initiate evacuation flow into the region. The research, data compilation and map development were completed by the three regional planning agencies, Pioneer Valley Planning Commission, the Franklin Regional Council of Governments and the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission. Critical infrastructure data layers were incorporated into the maps. Primary, secondary and alternate routes were plotted on the maps. The maps have been distributed to each municipality in the four counties of western Massachusetts. If any town official is interested in these maps please contact Raine Brown, Homeland Security Program Manager.
