One cannot expect communication resources to be readily available at disaster- affected site. Moreover, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) rescue supplies tends to be for heavy-duty and limited in quantity. This affects the information exchange and may cause delay in rescue operation, which is highly undesirable. In this thesis, we aim to utilize the time between rescue workers reaching the disaster-affected site and when the Internet connection is made available. The idea is to start the local communication and information exchange without waiting for the recovery of Internet connection. We propose a self-contained software package in the form of Linux Live USB flash drive.Our solution requires that Linux Live USB flash drives, laptop computers and external USB Wi-Fi NICs are provided to rescue workers as rescue supplies
