On the way of ubiquitous computing, there are lots of research works for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) development. But very few works among of these huge research works specially consider disaster mitigation and rescue operation after disaster. Considering the effects of disaster, we have to develop a data collection framework for disaster mitigation and rescue operation; and a lower delay based energy efficient WSN protocol for data dissemination from disaster areas as well. In this paper, we propose a data collection framework for disaster mitigation and rescue operation. In addition, a WSN protocol for rescue operation is proposed in this paper. We simulate the performance of the protocol based on proposed framework and compare the performance of the protocol with that of SENDROM  system protocol, where our proposed protocol outperforms the SENDROM protocol.
