Natural disasters represent a typical large-scale dynamic environments. As governments are more and more relying on sensors to monitor natural disasters, many related research problems have to be tackled, in particular the sensors relocation. In this paper we propose to plan the sensors relocation in a virtual geographic environment (VGE) which is synchronized with the real environment (where the sensors are deployed). In this VGE, we combine both simulation-based planning and agent-based planning to conduct relocation. We also apply an enhanced continual planning approach to face the environment dynamism. We use the wildfire fighting as an illustrative scenario.
