This study estimated the number of seriously injured people and spatial distribution and examined the transportation strategies of seriously injured helicopter in the isolatability villages as a study of Shikoku area which expected to suffer severe damages in the Nankai Through massive earthquake.
As a result, seriously injured people in Shikoku were scattered widely when the Nankai Through massive earthquake occurred. In addition, it was clear the strategies of transporting seriously injured people on villages level requires an enormous number of days. It was suggested that one transportation base is provided in the elementary school district or the junior high school district and serious injured people are transported by combining the large helicopters and the small helicopters from there, so that it can be transported more quickly and efficiently.
