We are proposing a model of communication and a specification of language for civilian agents in RoboCup Rescue Simulation. Robust information systems are critical infrastructure for rescue in huge disasters. The main issue of the information system in the rescue domain is that the most of information sources are civilians who may report incomplete information. Proposed model and specification is designed to reflect natural features of human communication behaviors. The model is also designed in order to provide for researchers to implement new design of information devices in the simulation flexibly. Using the model and specification, we can evaluate information systems and behaviors of rescue specialist agents.
