In a crisis all rescue forces, government agencies, volunteers, and business sectors work together to supply immediate relief efforts. The problem of the lack of a shared platform or similar communication methods among the collaborators usually arises within a few hours. The paper presents an outline of an ontology model for the construction of a common platform for sharing different concepts in different languages and coordinating rescue forces. Motivation is supplied by the Boxing Day Tsunami crisis.
