Abstract

One common problem associated with catastrophes as pointed out in this document research, is the issue of lack of communication and information. Over recent years, there have been deliberations about how disasters could have been managed better with the presence of good communication medium and means to vital information prior and during the course of the rescue process. This document sheds more light on this problem with analysis of real case studies and a proposed solution to tackle it. It describes the development of part of an ongoing project designed to handle real time access to information and a fast deployable means of communication. The project involves the use of wireless mesh network and mobile devices to establish a setup for the exchange of information to manage disasters.
