Internet has become the primary means for worldwide communications. In terms of recreation, business, and various imaginative reasons for information distribution it is the most used communication method today. In recent times, it is a big issue of how we can make the best use of Internet in an emergency period. The goal of this paper is to ensure Internet's best effort services to help during emergencies without any major changes in existing technology. Here, we present a system architecture that reflects a general overview of how it can work parallel to the authorized Emergency Telecommunications Services (ETS). To detect location information in a loosely coupled network environment is the most challenging aspect using IP's flat address model. Our conceptual view of the system architecture shows how the service can be provided extending DHCP, XML with existing core technology. In succession, a simulation of the system is shown to realize call setup delay and end to end VoIP packet delay over the IP network.
