An Evacuation Transport is a vessel type employed by the U.S. Navy. Its designation is APH,[1] and the vessel is used to evacuate personnel, principally the wounded.

Evacuations depend on mobility. People with physical, sensory, chronic, behavioral, or cognitive disabilities may not be mobile enough for evacuations. Planners must consider the transportation needs of the community in evacuation plans. Those with disabilities that decrease mobility may need additional help evacuating.[2]
