4.1.2 Information Management

There are two aspects of communication when a disaster occurs. The first is communication tools for distributing information such as radio, telephone, and supporting systems such as satellite, electricity, chargers, and transmission lines. The second is information management, which is a protocol to find out who gives what information to whom, what priority is given in communication, how information is disseminated and interpreted.

Online communication can speed up the flow which is crucial due to unstable social conditions that often change overtime in the field. Therefore, it is particularly important to establish a secure and smooth communication infrastructure and facilities.
