This research paper deals with the possible logistics measures in the inception phase of disaster management model. The inception phase is a potential new element of the disaster management model and could be specified as a significant time range between the emergence of disaster and its impact. The limited time range offers a wide spectrum of emergency logistics activities during disaster (e.g. activation of warning systems, evacuation of the population, distribution of goods, activation of flood control measures, …). In the introduction, theoretical bases of disaster management and emergency logistics are presented. Then the possibility of disaster management model innovation and the benefits of its extension to the inception phase are examined. This chapter is followed by the analysis of more than 300 catastrophic events (since 2000) that are examined in terms of time course. Based on this information, it is possible to determine the usual duration of the inception phase in each type of disaster. Proposed approach should be applied especially in the case of giant tsunami tide waves (due to the ideal time length minutes to hours), that arise as a side effect of an underwater earthquake and, exceptionally, during volcanic activity. Chapter Results & Discussion then cover list of activities that should be implemented (in specific time, order, …) when Tsunami events occur. Conclusion of our paper deals with comparison of often current inefficient use and our ideas. about of mentioned time range and future possibilities.Keywords: Disaster, earthquake, inception phase, model, tsunami
