The research showed that as the role of EMS Is becomes mandatory in all disaster management occurring worldwide EMS personnel need to be extensively trained and have their triage skills evaluated.

C-Disaster Recovery

This is the last phase in disaster management in which the EMS staff returns to their normal functioning status. This involves replacement of patient care supplies and equipment, transportation vehicle maintained, and adjustment of financial capabilities.

Mental health status of EMS providers needs to be assessed in this stage as during a disaster they experience psychological stress that they need to rehab from after the end of the incident. Critical incident stress management (CISM) needs to be implemented and more research and efforts need to be spent to improve ways of relieving this stress.
