Toelichting (Engels) In this article, and also in the described model, we focus on possibilities for evaluating the preparation of the Netherlands for a mass evacuation before being exposed to the consequences of a flooding disaster. In this article, we describe version 1.0 of the evacuation exercise model ‘SPOEL,’ which can support the evaluation of flood preparedness in the absence of real flood events. Also, we describe results of two case studies in the Netherlands in which this model was used and compare it to lessons learned from real evacuations in the New Orleans area. ‘SPOEL’ is a simulation model developed to train, prepare, and evaluate individual players and multi-participant response systems for a mass evacuation. The instrument can be seen as a simulation game for emergency response professionals.
