This study aims to explore the potential of adopting radio frequency identification (RFID) in emergency management. In discovering the relevance and practicality of RFID in emergency management, a conceptual framework based on TTF model has been proposed and discussed in this paper. Multiple case study method has been employed to validate the proposed framework. The empirical findings in this study indicate that five key factors influencing the decision to adopt are privacy, compatibility, standardization, implementation and locatability. It is hoped that the findings of this research will inform emergency management organizations to better plan the adoption of RFID for emergency operations.
