This research investigates the feasibility of using inland waterway transportation to provide emergency medical response to catastrophic events. Limited resources are available to provide general hazard relief across much of the United States. Inland waterways can provide access for equipment and people when other means of transportation are unavailable due to capacity constraints or destruction. Specific research questions include: (1) what are the emergency response capabilities of inland waterways, (2) what is the feasibility of providing emergency medical services via barge, (3) which types of communities could benefit from such a service, and (4) for which types of emergencies could medical response via barge be appropriate. This research is accomplished through literature review, feasibility analysis, and a case study based on the state of Arkansas. A Waterway Emergency Medical Service (WEMS) index is developed to guide emergency planners in evaluating the feasibility of incorporating emergency medical response via inland waterways into their emergency operations plan (EOP).Retrieved March 2, 2009, from http://www.marinereach.com/ourships. aspx?m2= ships Morton, Roger.
