Information Technology Based Approach for Management of Forest Fire Controlling in Sri Lanka
Forest fire is one of the hazardous disasters that damage human lives and properties all over the world. However, there are several drawbacks in the existing forest fire controlling procedure in Sri Lanka. This concept paper presents a proposed study to develop a framework for dynamic resource allocation during a forest fire situation to mitigate the identified drawbacks. After reviewing the existing ICT based approaches available for dynamic resource allocation during disasters and their applicability for Sri Lankan context, a web based forest fire controlling system will be proposed. The proposed study reveals that the government of Sri Lanka as well as the citizens get benefits by adopting such ICT based solution to handle forest fires.
