Disaster is a sudden accident or a catastrophic calamity that causes incredible damage or loss of life. Disaster has different types like Tornadoes, Floods, Wildfires, and Earthquakes. When a disaster occurs, many people get injured and many people die due to delay in timely treatment. But in a traditional rescue system, rescue workers are unaware of suitable and nearest health centers (hospitals) per patient condition. Rescue teams need to be updated about the capacity of the hospital and to know the shortest route to bring disaster patients to the most suitable hospital in minimum possible time. If resources are not available or occupied once they have arrived, retransfer from one hospital to another will be required which takes longer time and in severe condition, the patient could die. Smart Resource Allocation and Information System increases the chances of life in disaster by providing timely treatment. With the help of Smart Resource Allocation and Information System, the rescue teams will be aware of the shortest path, availability of specialist per patient condition and capacity of the hospital where disaster patient is to be assigned. So, the application allows timely treatment and better resuscitation services for catastrophic victims. Our designed system provides the solution for patient load balancing and patient load migration, better utilization of available resources, especially in resource constraint scenarios.
