The present research addresses the problem of the investigation how potentialities of the technologies of smart space environments and Web-services can be exploited in emergency situations. The research purpose is to organize a resource community from an enormous amount of resources embedded in the smart space. The aims of the community members are planning emergency response actions and acting in accordance with the plan. Situation (or context) awareness is one of the major issues when dealing with emergency. In this connection, the research proposes a smart framework that supports organisation of a resource community in a context-aware manner. This framework defines a generic scheme for service-oriented context-aware organization of resource community and service-oriented architecture of smart environment. The framework is applied to three kinds of emergency events: fire, traffic accident, and traffic accident that produced car ignition.
