If you are not affiliated with an institution that has licensed access to online journals, there is a good alternative database that you can use to retrieve scholarly information. The database is PubMedCentral, and it contains full-text (complete articles) to many journals that publish articles on disaster planning. For instance, here is an article from Canadian Family Physician on increasing surge capacity by using home-based hospital care. Keep in mind that PubMedCentral contains only a subset of disaster planning literature. For a complete look at what’s available, search PubMed and then contact your local interlibrary loan department for access to articles not freely available.
