Abstract

Countries with better disaster management plans can better signify their existence. The earthquake is one such hazardous catastrophe that leads to heavy damage. Disaster management does not avert or eliminate the threats fully; instead, it focuses on use of technology, creating plans to lessening the effect of disasters up to significant level. Depending on the magnitude and type of waves, earthquakes crush everything, from buildings to small houses, from towers to trees, and from roads to bridges. Tsunamis and landslides follow its way as well. After the earthquake comes, the settling of things back to normal involves a lot of time, money, and manpower as well. Hence, the only solution of this is leading-edge technology support. Sensor network technology is one of the proven techniques for not only varieties of early warning, prediction, and detection systems but also post-phenomenon rescue and support. This chapter will help researchers and policy makers to think fresh on disaster management with sensor network technology.
