This paper highlights the importance of Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G networks in sustainable cities, focusing on disaster management systems. It also discusses suitable 5G communication technologies in disaster-affected and communications outage areas. The paper surveys various potential emerging communication technologies such as IoT, Device to Device (D2D) communications, vehicular networks, cloud and fog computing, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and sensor networks for the disaster situations. The presented work offers an insight in collaborative solutions using diverse technologies, which benefits from ever-rising wireless connected devices to support communications in natural catastrophes. The paper also presents extensive taxonomy for a disaster communication system and shares key results in selected areas. The key requirements for successful deployment of the robust communications system are also presented.
