Abstract

The Electronic Mass Casualty Assessment and Planning Scenarios (WMCAPS) computerized modeling tool was developed for applications in emergency management and public health fields. The approach involved developing a tool that worked for users with a wide range of training and education and that worked reliably on a variety of PCs. The tool was aimed at providing user-scalable scenarios with state and national guidelines and requirements. The tool was intended to support emergency preparedness planning efforts at multiple levels, ranging from local health systems to regional and state public health departments.
