Natural disasters are natural forces that cannot be avoid. There are various natural disasters that have been recorded since human civilization which are earthquakes, storms, floods and so on. Malaysia is not spared from experiencing a natural disaster. Although Malaysia is fortunate because did not receive a lot of natural disasters like other countries in the world, but the impact of natural disasters that befell onto Malaysia is still large and can cause devastating losses such as loss of life. Flash flood is a natural disaster that affecting Malaysia the most. Malaysia's position in the middle of wind flowing from north to south and vice versa yielding monsoon wind. The wind was carrying the next heavy rain caused flooding in Malaysia. Melaka as one of the existing state in Malaysia is no exception from this natural disaster. Low areas are prone to flash floods during the annual monsoon season. When natural disasters occur, the situation will become very chaotic and uncertain. There are various studies and findings has been conducted to investigate this situation to further understand how people can react in accordance with the chaos. Studies has produced a framework to confront the natural environment crisis. Within this framework there are five proposed measures to confront the crisis situations To ensure that each of these steps can be carried out successfully, good communication is required. Communication is one important element in times of crisis. With communication, situation can be controlled, news and information can be conveyed to the rescue team and rescue and recovery process can be carried out. To ensure that the message of can be arranged in the order of precedence of the more important and less important in the future, a mechanism should be introduced. This is to ensure that the composition of the news can be arranged according to the importance so decisions can be made quickly and can easily be change with the times of crisis. In this study, Agile Decision Making (ADM) was introduced to help those involved in the rescue and recovery of flood victims making a decision using Agile Decision Making. Agile Decision Making will be developed in this study. After Agile Decision Making has been developed, research will be done to get feedback from related agencies of effectiveness of using Agile Decision Making during the process of flash flood rescue and recovery Result from feedback will be used to improve Agile Decision Making in the future. This research will also try to understand parameters that can contribute in the process of rescue and recovery in flash flood situations. This parameter can help related agencies make decision on dangerousness of situation during rescue and recovery of flood victims. At the end of this study are expected to be better understood by flash floods and the system can be developed. The system is expected it can help improve the process of rescuing the victims of flash floods in the future.
