Abstract: By their very nature, mass casualty events are difficult to predict; therefore the nature, location and time of incidents, as well as their impacts are almost unclear to the disaster planners. The ability of an emergency medical system to deal with acute, unexpected increases in medical demands during disasters is a concept endorsed by the vast majority of emergency planners.
