Abstract: Disaster monitoring is one of the most challenging application in wireless ad hoc networks as establishing infrastructure based networks are neither feasible nor suitable in that environments. As disaster strikes suddenly therefore advance planning to anticipate and manage, is necessary to minimize its effect. With a well designed ad hoc network system, the real scenarios of post disaster could be monitored promptly, and as per that action can be taken to save the lives of victims or minimize the losses. Reliable delivery of monitoring message is one of the key requirements in disaster management systems along with energy saving. Message reliability, improves the performance of the system while energy saving prolong the life time of nodes. We design a framework for disaster management considering above requirements. We propose three scenarios for different situations considering reliability and energy efficiency. The simulation results shows the end-to-endmessage delivery and energy efficiency at different phase.
