Number of disasters is increasing day by day. A large number of people get affected by these disasters. The most immediate action to take once some disaster has occurred is to visit that location and provide facilities to the victims of disaster. This approach i.e. to provide services to the affected victims should be as timelier and as soon possible to save maximum lives and other properties from disasters. This paper discusses and analyzes that how are the services provided by disaster management systems by detection of disaster in immediate manner, how we can improve this system to identify the affected area immediately and to reach over there with minimum delay. It also discusses that what sort of network architecture and paging mechanism can be designed for better communication with minimum delay.
