  Abstract In rapid-onset disasters the time needed for evacuation is crucial. Aside from the behaviour of the population, the

road network plays a fundamental role. It serves as a medium to reach a safe area. This study analyses the entire

evacuation process, from decision-making up to the arrival at an evacuation zone by combining standardised

questionnaires and GIS-based simulation. Based on a case study in the Chilean community of Talcahuano, an

event-based past scenario and a hypothetical future scenario is investigated, integrating the affected population in

the research process. The main problem identified in past evacuations has been time delay due to congestions,

which also is evident in the results of the hypothetical future scenario. A result which supports evacuation by foot.

This paper argues that a combination of scientific methods is essential for analysing evacuation and to reduce the

risk due to time delay, critical route and transport medium choice.
