In this paper the application of ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) in road evacuation in the case of route optimization for emergency vehicles is reported. The ITS are usually used in transport to analyse the data and improve the system performances. In road evacuation, the ITS can be used at three levels: survey and transmission, control and user information. This structure allows managing an evacuation starting from the network monitoring and defining the optimal strategies to apply to speed up the evacuation procedure.
