Emergency situations are unavoidable. This paper presents the functions inherent in a prototype system that was developed in Malaysia for emergency management. The prototype is potentially useful in Selangor, a state in Malaysia that is prone to natural disasters such as flash floods and landslides. The paper is presented as a report of our on-going project in Malaysia and the intended future work regarding web-based emergency management systems in Malaysia. This prototype development is funded by the Ministry of Education in Malaysia and supported by the National Security Council of Malaysia (Majlis Keselamatan Negara, MKN).
