The INGENIAS Development Kit (IDK) supports the development of fully functional Multi-agent Systems (MASs) from specification models, following a model-driven approach. This paper presents a practical application about crisis-management, in order to provide a full example of application of the IDK tool; and consequently, the specification and the code of this system are included in the IDK 2.8 distribution. The presented application manages the crisis situation of a city, in which, a poisonous material is released, and the central services are not enough to heal all the affected people. The software engineering process of the presented MAS application covers the following phases: specification, model design, implementation, and testing. Both the number of interactions and the number of participants are economized in order to increase the network efficiency, due to the real-time necessity of the MAS application.
