In this paper what to models are considered in order to define optimal emergency vehicle distribution (in terms of vehicle numbers, weak users sequence to visit) and hence paths/routes with the objective to optimize the total time for safe users in evacuation condition. The design problem is tackled with a multilevel approach, which allows, by subsequent steps, to consider the network performances, the vehicle paths (One to One Problem) and the vehicle routes (Vehicle Routing Problem). In this
