Abstract

The community is recognized as an extremely important resource for emergency help during a disaster. Only a well-prepared community-based disaster emergency response is able to cope with the consequences of natural disasters, which usually cause large numbers of casualties and enormous destruction. Understanding the required response in an emergency is an essential step in designing an appropriate system. Our goal was to analyze the differences in emergency response expectations between community residents and rescue workers during a mudslide disaster.
Our study reviewed the Community Medical Disaster Planning and Evaluation Guide, which was edited by Dr. Erik Auf der Heide and the American College of Emergency Physicians. The questionnaires were formulated by using key informant interviews, focus group discussions and expert opinions. Our study population was based on a number of communities that have been badly affected by mudslide disasters. The study population was divided into two groups: community residents and rescue workers. By comparing categories within these two groups, significant differences were found in the patient care activities and support activities between community residents and rescue workers (P=0.02 and 0.03).
