Emergency management is an essential capability in modern society. As disasters can happen at any time and can differ from each other considerably, it is necessary to develop a supple framework which can comply with each situation. The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of the i-Protect Emergency Management Framework and analyze in details each of its components. As a proof of concept, we also present two case studies: an urban chemical explosion and a wildland fire simulation engine.
