Evacuation Instructions for Transportation Related Hazardous Material Emergencies

In most cases, we expect that the actions to shelter in place would be sufficient to protect residents from a transportation related hazardous materials emergency.   However, incidents involving shipments of weapons to the Naval Submarine Base and major incidents such as a railroad derailment could cause a need to evacuate some neighborhoods.

Who is affected?

Residents living in close proximity to the accident area. 

Where to Go?

With the exception of hazardous materials emergencies in the immediate vicinity of the Ledyard High School, any residents evacuated from their neighborhoods would be sent to the Ledyard High School.  If the high school is inaccessible, the Ledyard Middle School will be utilized.

Emergency Alerting System messages will tell you the evacuation assembly location.

The Ledyard High School is located at the intersection of Gallup Hill Road and Colonel Ledyard Highway.

The Ledyard Middle School is located at the intersection of Route 12 and Route 214.
