dc.description.abstract Disaster is an unfortunate, yet common phenomenon in our world today. This phenomenon stakes undesirable claims on lives, infrastructure and services alike. Those affected both directly and indirectly must overcome challenges, not only during but also, after the occurrence of disasters. Imperatively, it is always prefered to be better equipped to prevent the disaster and avoid it altogether. Yet that is impossible as not all disasters are man-made. Disaster management then must be up to the task to reduce consequences to the barest minimum. This has not been the case in Ghana. There is a great need for efficient communication channels and accessible data that will greatly help to preserve lives and property in the country. This project focuses directly on meeting this need. This paper outlines the various technologies and processes employed in developing a disaster management system that has great potential in solving the said problem. The application is an Android application with a simple and intuitive design. Challenges encountered in the development process are also discussed. In addition, suggestions on future work on this application are also given. en_US
