This paper, about earthquake-disaster management system of Quetta city using GIS, point up how the effects of earthquakes can be minimized. For this purpose it proposes two strategies: preparedness for when the disaster occurs and hazard mitigation and emergency response. The earthquake disaster preparedness plan is essentially a plan that identifies weaknesses and threats to the urban environment and proposes strategies to overcome these weaknesses. Earthquake disaster mitigation plan describes how to respond when a disaster occurs. GIS will be developed using risk mapping that is hazard's layers and typical or general layers. Typical layers include the layers typically necessary for developing GIS for a disaster for example service infrastructure, housing typologies, and critical emergency facilities, such as police and fire stations, and hospitals. Where as hazard's layers include seismic hazard layer, seismic micro zoning layer and risk categorization layer
