Today it has become both the government and citizens concern
to care human beings against ever-increasing crisis around the globe. There
are so many natural disasters like: forest fire incidents, earthquakes, floods,
eruptions, tsunami and etc. despite all this kinds of natural and man- made
disasters from a social perspective, it their potentiality to seriously and
irreversible damage regions. In addition the extent and severity of such
incidents may significantly affect the population. For that reason and the
fact that Geographic information system is recognized as a useful system
for alleviation the risk during the crisis management we develop the idea
to promote a new model to have a practical and applicable method of GIS
adoption within the crisis management in order to save as many lives as it can
be done. This study aims to come out with a model that will not allow drop
links. Each smart phone will have application in the event of natural disaster
and it switched due to the change of the vital function of man in trouble. This
will help departments respond as soon as they can and save lives as many as
they can and to reduce the percentage of people who could not call for help.
This work highlights the design challenges and required technical innovations
towards the goal of making GIS much more useful.
