In this paper, we formulate the casualty collection points (CCPs) location problem as a multi-objective model. We propose a minimax regret multi-objective (MRMO) formulation that follows the idea of the minimax regret concept in decision analysis. The proposed multi-objective model is to minimize the maximum per cent deviation of individual objectives from their best possible objective function value. This new multi-objective formulation can be used in other multi-objective models as well. Our specific CCP model consists of five objectives. A descent heuristic and a tabu search procedure are proposed for its solution. The procedure is illustrated on Orange County, California.
