When stricken by a catastrophic natural disaster, emergency rescue operation is very critical to many lives. Many people trapped in the disastrous areas under collapsed buildings or landslides may have a large chance to survive if they are rescued in "Golden 72 Hours". Victims rescued from the debris and evacuated from their home jammed in shelters need life support material to support their lives. They also need to communicate to each other for various reasons. However, communication systems were usually down due to various reasons. The loss of communication systems and information networks made the rescue and relief operation extremely difficult. Many people died before they got a chance to be rescued. This paper analyzes the causes that paralyzed the entire communication systems in Jiji/Taiwan Earthquake and proposes a MANET based communication platform as well as a Rescue Information System for Earthquake Disasters that can support a large number of rescue volunteers under catastrophic natural disasters.
