The introduction of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to the management of catastrophes give us the opportunity to significantly increase the effectiveness of the rescue forces. Current state of the art, hanging triage cards and white boards, require a significant level of effort and stress to achieve the organization of the operation. In this paper we discuss a solution based on an autonomous sensor network and the necessity of its implementation on such scenarios. Scalability properties, robustness, ultra low-power consumption and user acceptance were aspects considered during the development. We studied as well the real time tracking of valuable patient information like the status of vital parameters and its location. By observing the interaction with the end user, we finalized out tests to prove the reliability, efficiency and effort-reduction of our technology during simulation exercises.
