Organizations and individuals have been facing disasters globally and locally since hundreds of years. Increasing number of natural disasters has demonstrated the paramount importance of the natural hazards subject for the protection of environment and the citizens. Now more than ever, designing an efficient traffic system, moving vast amounts of helping goods quickly and safely across great distances is one of our most pressing needs. Satellite navigation systems are changing the way in which we travel from place to place whether by land, sea or air and whether in remote areas or through congested city streets. Global positioning system (GPS) and its role in advanced transportation projects is inseparable and become a synonym. The management and operations of vehicles and giving real-time information to users that will lead to cost-effective and satisfied service to passengers is possible nowadays using a GPS based vehicle navigation system and communication via remote sensing. This paper describes how the already developed fleet management and remote sensing technologies can be merged together to form an efficient disaster management system
