Toelichting (Engels) The main goal of disaster management is to reduce the number of casualties to a minimum. Evacuation is one of the means to reduce the number of casualties. In preparation of a large scale evacuation the training of authorities and rescue workers is needed. The aim of such practicing sessions is to improve the quality and speed of decision making and increase the level coordination. A simulation tool, SPOEL, is developed to include the traffic process, the resource planning and the progress of the disaster in one virtual world. This simulation tool supports the supervisors of the training session in giving a realistic feedback. The simulation tool gives insight in the status of the traffic system in general, the progress of the evacuation, the status of (critical) resources, the disaster and casualties.
