Coordinate Emergency Inputs

This process shall coordinate the emergency inputs received from the processes that collect incident and emergency data, the commercial vehicle and hazardous materials emergencies, as well as the emergency inputs received directly from sensors and surveillance functions. This process shall forward the collected incident data to the operator. Based on the verification received from the operator this process shall determine what responding agencies to notify and route the verified emergencies to those predesignated responding agencies for response. This process shall provide the identified emergency information in a standard format as required. Every set of emergency data received shall be assigned a level of confidence by the process depending on its source, so that the subsequent processes can assess the level of response to be provided. This process shall include verification, in that it shall determine if a number of inputs might all be referring to the same incident, then designate that incident in its notifications to the most appropriate responding agencies. By reconciling numerous reports and other collaborative information from the field (e.g. CCTV images, reports from field staff), the verification function confirms the existence, location, and nature of a reported emergency.
