Disaster is a very common phenomenon to the human society. It has been experienced by them since time immemorial. During and after any extreme event of natural or man-made disasters, getting people out of danger and place them to an area of safety are the primary objectives. Orderly and efficient evacuations, providing support in medical emergency are the key to saving lives. An automated system for disaster management can be extensively used in different tasks of disaster problem solving such as communication among agents, collective decision making, cooperation, collaborative planning in large scale that deals with uncertainty and conflicting information during disaster management. This thesis is aimed at developing an android application to generate an automated mobile-based system which can model and manage emergency situations; run numerous, accurate event-driven emergency scenarios and the movement of first responders and security personnel. The purpose of such development was to assemble an application with a user friendly interface for the responders and implement some effective ways considering minimize the communication gap. In order to develop the application, different algorithms, approaches and languages were examined that can ensure the motives mentioned in case of emergency. Evaluating with the real time information, this thesis can be a very promising application to help the BRAC volunteers or responders with their operating procedure.
