For the purpose of realizing horizontal information sharing among organizations involved in disaster management in the Tokyo metropolitan area, this study aims to extract problems in responding to disaster in the initial stage of a Tokyo metropolitan near-field earthquake disaster, to develop applications for disaster management to contribute to solving these problems, and to implement a demonstration of the information linkage incorporating applications for officials of local governments in charge of disaster management and fire-fighting. To put it concretely, Kanagawa Prefecture, Yokohama City, and Kawasaki City were selected as the area for demonstration, and simultaneous multiple fires and emergency medical transport by helicopter and ambulance were taken up as the main subjects of the demonstration. The demonstration was implemented for application to disaster management consisting of fire spread simulation, an information-sharing network for disaster relief helicopters, a system for emergency medical transport by ambulance, a system for disaster response management and an all-purpose disaster information viewer, and information linkage incorporating an information-sharing database.
