Due to the frequently occurring disasters in the world, emergency management is an attractive research area aiming to stabilize the disasters and reduce the potential damage to human, facility and environment. The timely and effective emergency management is highly relied on the utilization of observable information and the integration of available resources. Computational intelligence is one of the fastest growing areas in the field of computer technology. Nowadays, big data has brought ever-increasing impact and challenge to effective data processing and intelligent decision-making. Computation intelligence technologies play a vital role during the lifecycle of emergency management in the context of big data. This review provides a comprehensive survey of state-of-the-art computation intelligence technologies widely applied in the emergency management, and summarizes the present-day emergency management systems in diverse industries. Finally, some promising future research directions and challenges are indicated.
