Recent ubiquitous disasters like flood, earthquake and other natural calamities have been leading to mass destruction of the innocent lives across the world. Due to the wide-area earthquake disaster, unavailable power and communication infrastructure, limited manpower and resource, traditional rescue operations and equipment are inefficient and time-consuming, leading to the golden hours missed. With the increasing proliferation of powerful wireless devices, like smart phones, they can be assumed to be abundantly available among the disaster victims and can act as valuable resource to coordinate disaster rescue operations. In this paper, we propose an android based disaster rescue system, to assist the operations of disaster rescue and relief. The basic idea of this project is to help and rescue the needy by viewing their current location in Google map. There is an authentication for admin and user in this android application. Admin adds the details of camps, collection centers by adding camp name, in-charge of camp and contact number. Supplies needed in camp can be viewed by admin just by clicking on the camp location in map. The user can just open the application and ask for help just by clicking-I need help‖ tab and after this the supplies needed, name of the user and contact number are added by the user. Once the user adds these details, this requirement is sent to admin with user's location. Admin views it and does the needful and updates the status as responders dispatched or marks the request as resolved once the need of the user is fulfilled. This proposed approach can significantly reduce the delay in providing supplies and helps the user to view the camps and collection centers just by installing this app.
