The knowledge requirements of managing emergencies are inherently dynamic and evolving in nature. Existing KM systems in the context of emergency management are essentially static. This paper suggests the use of multi-agent systems for implementation of a more reliable and dynamic emergency planning and response system that can support the evolutionary nature of knowledge in emergencies. To validate this approach and to provide proof-of-concept, several tools have been used in this paper such as Jena and Protg. We demonstrate how multi-agents are implemented for knowledge evolution and change management using the JADE platform.
