Abstract

This paper addresses the impacts of RFID (radio frequency identification) adoption on the performance of emergency management organizations. The research question queries: What are the impacts of RFID adoption on the performance of emergency management operations? In order to investigate the hypothesized impacts including reduced response time, efficient tagging and tracking, compatibility, reduced labor cost and robustness, multiple case study has been employed as the research method. It is anticipated that the findings of this research will assist the emergency management organizations to better plan the adoption of pertinent technologies such as RFID for emergency operations.
