EMSSim: Emergency medical service simulator with geographic and medical details. This paper introduces EMSSim that is an agent-based simulation of emergency medical services during disasters. We developed EMSSim to encompass the disaster victims’ pass-ways from their rescues to their definitive care. This modeling scope resulted that our model delivers the detailed geographical and medical modeling which are often modeled separately. This is an effort to fill the gap between the pre-hospital delivery and the in-hospital care over the disaster period. We specified the model with a variant of the dynamic DEVS formalism so that the complex models could be better understood and utilized by others. Also, we suggest a modeling approach to create a profile with mathematical modeling on the victims’ survival rates, which would enable our models to simulate the effectiveness of the treatments by the responders. Finally, we provide a case study of virtual experiments that analyzes the sensitivity of rescue performances by varying the disaster response resources.
