Appendix: Project Steering Committee Members

Development of the Mass Evacuation Transportation Model was part of an AHRQ Task Order with Abt Associates that was intended to support development of a national strategy for the design, development, and implementation of an interagency mass patient and evacuee movement, regulating and tracking system. The National Response Plan assumes that up to 100,000 patients and evacuees may require transport, regulating, and tracking during a catastrophic incident. The AHRQ project was undertaken in collaboration with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Public Health Emergency Preparedness. AHRQ and DoD jointly led the project.

A project steering committee was also convened that guided the project. The persons listed below attended at least one of the three day-long meetings held on December 1, 2005, April 12, 2006, and October 27, 2006.
