The purpose of this handbook is to provide guidelines to assist in the development of evacuation plans and to ensure the principles and concepts of evacuation planning remain consistent nationally. It is designed to assist agencies in developing and revising community evacuation plans. The first edition of this handbook was developed and published in 1998, then revised in 2005 by a steering committee consisting of emergency management personnel. The working party involved in this latest revision was coordinated by the Australian Emergency Management Institute of the Attorney-General's Department and consisted of representatives from a cross-section of agencies and jurisdictions.
