    In case of emergency, the coordination of different services deals with different working methods, different languages, different instruments, different sensors and different data representations. Thus, the coordination of services includes heterogeneity problems that can be managed with the help of ontology matching techniques. In this paper we present a scenario where the requirements for ontology matching arise from emergency evacuation plans, in the specific domain of civil protection applications. We envisage what kind of smart sensor technologies could be used to support critical decisions when heterogeneous sources of information have to be matched.
