This paper proposes the national pandemics contingency plan for any country based on the application of the minimum food, water & medication storage for a massive pandemic quota (psi-Quota). Consequently, the main objective the psi-Quota is to calculate the approximate amount of food, water, and medicines storage amount annually in case of a possible massive pandemic crisis. Finally, this paper is divided into three sections: (i) the minimum food, water, and medicine quota storage calculation in case of a massive pandemic; (ii) the food, water, and medicine storage quota for a massive pandemic; (iii) the geographical distribution and mapping of the emergency aid supplier's modules in case of a massive pandemic for any country. Finally, the psi-Quota was applied on the case of Malaysia.
