Mobile communication plays an important role in disaster recovery management during emergency situations. It is helpful in situations where the system has less robust and less flexible fixed infrastructure. The Disaster recovery management systems require timely interaction and coordination in order to save lives and property. Energy consumption in heterogeneous network is a major issue, whether they operate within a base station infrastructure, fixed network or in a free-standing Mobile Ad Hoc NETwork (MANET). The lifetime of network will be improved by suitably reducing the requirement of power for connections.
