Abstract: Emergency resources storage takes an important role in emergency management research which decides whether the disaster relief process can be carried out smoothly. In this paper we analyse the necessity of regional emergency resources storage and find that the region division problem is of the first importance in the regional emergency resources storage system. We proposed a two-stage stochastic programming model and algorithm to solve this problem. Finally we gave a case study to highlight efficiency of the proposed solution strategy.
