Generally software model developers use a general purpose language such as Unified Modelling Language (UML) in modelling their domain application models. But when they come to the situation in which the models they create do not perfectly fit the modelling needs as they desire, a more specific domain modelling language offers a better alternative approach. In this paper, we create a Disaster Management (DM) metamodel that can be used to create a disaster management language. It will serve as a representational layer of DM expertise leading to a DM decision support system based on combining and matching different DM activities according to the disaster on hand. A creation process of the metamodel is presented leading to the synthesis of initial metamodel, as a main component to create a decision support system to unify, facilitate and expedite access to DM expertise.
