Extreme natural events require effective emergency procedures tominimize adverse effects on a region’s population and economy.Such procedures typically involve the effort of several differentteams of first responders (e.g., fire fighters, public administrations,police departments, utility companies), hence coordination isfundamental to the effectiveness of the response to theemergency that must be supported with adequate infrastructures.Nonetheless, first responders often rely on manual processes, inthe life cycle of extreme events, which do not change consistentlywith the type of shock or affected population.

Abstract

Extreme natural events require effective emergency procedures tominimize adverse effects on a region’s population and economy.Such procedures typically involve the effort of several differentteams of first responders (e.g., fire fighters, public administrations,police departments, utility companies), hence coordination isfundamental to the effectiveness of the response to theemergency that must be supported with adequate infrastructures.Nonetheless, first responders often rely on manual processes, inthe life cycle of extreme events, which do not change consistentlywith the type of shock or affected population. The aim of thispaper is to present a technology transfer process to improve boththe emergency alert process and the knowledge of disaster-typesafety procedures through the implementation of a proposedplatform. We also highlight a pilot application on a post-disastercase study—the province of L’Aquila (Abruzzi) in Italy.
