In this research a three-step method was adopted for evacuation planning. At the first step appropriate safe places for evacuation were identified and extracted using RS and image processing techniques. Then using by defining and implementing some constrains in GIS, suitable places were selected. At the second step, for each building block, optimum routes to its candidate safe areas should be determined. In this research, in order to simplify the modeling, the Euclidian distance was utilized. At the third step, by considering and optimizing different factors (such as distance from safe areas, the capacity of the safe areas, and the population of the building blocks) optimum distribution of people to the safe areas was determined. This paper outlines the results of the research.
