The objective of this study was to develop a model that can help determine supply requirements for the National Disaster Medical System, Disaster Medical Assistance Teams, or other responding disaster medical teams in a civilian environment. Results proved that the model predicted the proportion of patient complaints and, therefore, the medicine and supplies needed for the management of these patients.
