By presenting emergency management organizations of developed countries as early adopter of RFID in emergency management, this paper aims to minimize the disastrous impacts of emergencies currently faced by mankind; especially in developing countries. We conduct a study in the context of RFID adoption in emergency management and seek to answer the question - What are the contributing factors in the adoption of RFID in emergency management? In order to answer this question, a research framework is proposed by using a rather loose interpretation of task-technology fit (TTF) model. Multiple case study method has been employed to explore the contributing factors of RFID adoption. It is anticipated that the findings of this research will not only enhance the research in technology adoption, but also assist the emergency management organizations to better plan the adoption of pertinent technologies such as RFID for emergency operations.
