We consider the M/M/1 queue with disasters and impatient customers. Disasters only occur when the main server being busy, it not only removes out all present customers from the system, but also breaks the main server down. When the main server is down, it is sent for repair. The substitute server serves the customers at a slow rate(working breakdown service) until the main server is repaired. The customers become impatient due to the working breakdown. The system size distribution is derived. We also obtain the mean queue length of the model and mean sojourn time of a tagged customer. Finally, some performance measures and numerical examples are presented.
