Information Flow Definitions
alert notification coordination (Existing)
Coordination of emergency alerts to be distributed to the public. This includes notification of a major emergency such as a natural or man–made disaster, civil emergency, or child abduction for distribution to the public and status of the public notification.
incident command information coordination (Existing)
Information that supports local management of an incident. It includes resource deployment status, hazardous material information, traffic, road, and weather conditions, evacuation advice, and other information that enables emergency or maintenance personnel in the field to implement an effective, safe incident response.
incident report (Planned)
Report of an identified incident including incident location, type, severity and other information necessary to initiate an appropriate incident response.
incident response coordination (Existing)
Incident response procedures and current incident response status that are shared between allied response agencies to support a coordinated response to incidents. This flow provides current situation information, including a summary of incident status and its impact on the transportation system and other infrastructure, and current and planned response activities. This flow also coordinates a positive hand off of responsibility for all or part of an incident response between agencies.
resource coordination (Planned)
Coordination of resource inventory information, specific resource status information, resource prioritization and reallocation between jurisdictions, and specific requests for resources and responses that service those requests.
threat information coordination (Planned)
Sensor, surveillance, and threat data including raw and processed data that is collected by sensor and surveillance equipment located in secure areas.
transportation system status (Planned)
Current status and condition of transportation infrastructure (e.g., tunnels, bridges, interchanges, TMC offices, maintenance facilities). In case of disaster or major incident, this flow provides an assessment of damage sustained by the surface transportation system including location and extent of the damage, estimate of remaining capacity and necessary restrictions, and time frame for repair and recovery.
