Evacuate, courtesy of the Russian Federation's Soyuz craft. Fortunately I gather they've got a years supply of food up there. Not too sure about clothes though as one major problem still to be cracked is how to wash clothes in space.
The Progress failure is a reminder that everything to do with space is hazardous. Launch success is never guaranteed.
