Hi Milo,

evacuation_center=yes that can go on buildings

has been used in the past for hurricane events.

There is also the possibility to use
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:social_facility%3Dshelter which
I do not like as a tag for emergency shelters.

There is also http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:evacuation_route
that can go on highways.
