In a chaotic environment, information communication technology (ICT) supported by advanced smart devices have the capacity to enormously improve the emergency medical response to such mass-casualty incident disasters. Next-generation wireless Internet and geo-positioning have the greatest impact on improving communications, information management, and overall disaster response and emergency medical care. ICT is important to rescue victims on the site of accident or disaster and in hospitals which is used for triaging, testing and evaluation, handoffs, and admitting. ICT communication has three major challenges: sociological, technological, and organizational. The future communication in emergency will relay on wireless internet and geo-positioning technologies. Internet of Things and Machine to Machine communication are confirmed to be usedin the future during state of uncertainty.
