The Disaster Available Supplies in Hospitals (DASH) Tool is an interactive tool that can help hospital emergency planners and supply chain staff estimate supplies that may need to be immediately available during various mass casualty incidents (MCI) and infectious disease emergencies based on hospital characteristics.
DASH is comprised of several modules which, taken together, can provide hospitals a holistic view of the supplies needed to address various types of incidents.
