Entry ID: HCF_HEAT

[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Hurricane Evacuation Assessment Tool (HEAT) has been created to assist residents of Hillsborough County by providing evacuation and sheltering information in the event of a hurricane or other natural disaster. This interactive program using ArcIMS technology was designed to assist the public in easily determining if they are in one of the five evacuation zones. Depending upon the strength and track of an approaching hurricane, the evacuation plan calls for one of five color-coded evacuation levels. These are called evacuation levels A (purple), B (blue), C (green), D (yellow), and E (orange). Each evacuation level requires the evacuation of successively more residents inland from the coast. If you live in one of the color coded areas and your color corresponds to the level of evacuation ordered, you MUST evacuate. ALL MOBILE HOME RESIDENTS IN THE COUNTY MUST EVACUATE AT ALL EVACUATION LEVELS.

HEAT also provides information on shelters, hospitals, fire stations and sandbag locations. With the additional use of the Evacuation Routing program, residents are able to quickly print maps, with driving instructions, to one of these facilities. The display screen is divided into five parts: in the middle are Location Map, Map Window; on the left the Toolbar; on the bottom middle the attribute panel; and on the right is the layer/legend panel

The Hillsborough County Office of Emergency Management located in Tampa, Florida provides this service. The Emergency Management Office is responsible for planning and coordinating the evacuation and sheltering of county residents in the event of a natural or manmade disaster. This agency is also responsible for planning, orchestrating and coordinating response actions and continuity of government in the aftermath of a major disaster.
