According to this theme، comprehensive disaster management especially earthquake is an important factor to safe people life and evaluate risks by complete and update information bank، exact and modern hardware and GIS and Karmania Hazard softwares. This paper discusses with regard to the earthquake damage of Kerman and active faults evaluates vulnerability of the 13 operational area. In this method (survey)، by the Karmania Hazard software and GIS، landuse damage and the number of casualties are calculated; and then the efficiency rate of all kinds of emergency centers will be evaluated. 13 area is the old region of Kerman city that is included of different kinds of emergency center، one fire station ،14 health center and 10 police centers. By evaluating reports and vulnerabilities map results of simulation an earthquake with 6.3 (Ms) of magnitude caused by Koohbanan fault in Karmania Hazard software، except 7 hospitals the other emergency centers will be unusable; And because the population is more than 28000، there will be no enough area and open spaces for emergency and temporary housing and no enough space to set up search and rescue centers. The main problem here is old houses and mazing and narrow paths that hinders and rescue procedure and increases the dead persons numbers.
