*Abstract*

  • The task of this study is not to advocate crisis relocation planning, rather, it attempts to assess the desirability of feasibility studies of population evacuation. Among the major factors affecting feasibility, public acceptance of relocation concepts must rank high. Plans could be developed with minimum public concern, and the planning process itself can be a low profile activity throughout. However, if the evacuation program is to have a chance succeeding, its acceptance by the public, and their eventual compliance with its provisions must be considered. The data support the conclusion that crisis relocation planning is acceptable to most Americans, and that the sentiments revealed in the national studies establish a broad bed of essentially supportive, though passive, attitudes which make it altogether possible to proceed both with feasibility assessments, and in terms of acceptability, with actual planning.
