Abstract
A novel assessment method of emergency preparedness system vulnerability (EPSV) is established to evaluate the emergency system construction. The assessment index system and its complex network were constructed for EPSV. A simple weighted sum method was used to score the indices. And then the EPSV was calculated based on the Complex Network Theory. Finally, this model was applied to assessment EPSV of 3 regional governments. The results show that the emergency preparedness complex network can characterize the relationship between the components of an emergency preparedness system. This model can assessment the weak links and structural faults of regional emergency preparedness. The emergency preparedness complex network is rational, and the method is effective and feasible.
