To protect lives, honours and properties of the public is the prime objective of the government. To respond against any emergency and/or disaster to save the lives of public is very crucial due to shortage of time and allocation of optimal resources depending upon the nature of the disaster.

In the whole scenario of emergency right information regarding the type of emergency, its location, availability of resources to the closest vicinity of the crises and their optimal deployment and strong communications among the stakeholders is crucial to control / restrict / manage the panic events of a crisis.

Application of IT can play paramount role in emergency response system. The following capabilities of an emergency response system plays key

Research Goals:
My study will have the following goals.

1. Identification & selection of some of the given key latest technologies like software defined radios, self managing & repairing networks, semantic routing, user-centred COP, coordinated transportation, communication and decision support, collective sense making, and automated public reporting tool, optimization, web services , etc, and to integrate them with existing frameworks of emergency response systems to extend their efficiency & Viability and/or to propose a new integrated, intelligent, stable and efficient framework for Emergency Response System based on the above mentioned technologies.

2. Design and implement a functional prototype of the proposed Framework for the purpose of demonstration and to establish a proof of concept

Importance of Geo-ICT in managing risk and disaster is out of question and such systems are exhaustively use before, during and after the occurrence of a disaster [4]. Computing devices and applications are used now not only for desktop environment, but also for diverse environments like web, server-client, etc and this trend toward ubiquitous computing is accelerating [5].

By emerging truly ubiquitous computing, enabled by the availability of mobile, various devices that contribute context information is currently hampered due to non-availability of programming support for the design and development of context-aware applications and hence new proposed framework allows the developers to fuse data from unlike sensors with ease and without writing of complex codes[5].

Combining and integrating diverse technologies provides more effectiveness than each of them alone can provide [6]. During disaster response one big challenge is efficient collaboration and task management in fast changing environment and this may further provoked by the availability of data explosion such as large scale disaster, as incidents may get lost and/or delayed in large amount of data. Well-informed decisions and their assessment are imperative to monitor their effectiveness
