Based on experiences through different disasters, particularly earthquakes in Iran, we can assume that one of the main problems is lack of an exact and efficient identification system through which the victims, especially all those under the debris can be identified. Type of knowledge related to the disastrous situation and the relevant technology to handle the knowledge, which can speed up the search, rescue, relief, and as a whole Disaster Management process are highly important. In this paper, we suggest Radio Frequency Identification System used in coordination with Oracle as Data Base Management System with a dedicated network system. Finally, due to the importance of technology and knowledge type and sharing, a Knowledge Management System model is proposed. The proposed model intends to focus on knowledge, human and technology-related issues of Emergency Coordination Center. Emergency Coordination Center is Disaster Management headquarters center in which Knowledge Management System model is designed to address its relevant issues and challenges.
