Contact points: and 1 Ontology Silos and Emergency Response Management Systems Interoperability with Situational Based Alerting and Decision Support Services Ontolog Forum Panel Presentation Presenter: Michelle Raymond January 25, 2007
Contact points: and 2 Improving Emergency Response Send out the Alert! (to the right places) Give um what they need. (from the right places) Keep it moving. (through the right places) The fundamental goal is to improve actions that are taken, not just to increase information flowing among organizations. - Testimony presented before the House Government Reform Committee on March 30, 2006 by Brian A. Jackson of Rand Corp.
Contact points: and 3 Emergency Response Alerting Domain specific alerting systems –barriers to interoperability –process toward interoperability –methods for integration Emergency response alerting systems –Common Alerting –Partitioning alerting by domain –Personalizing alerting
Contact points: and 4 Sector based Information Sharing and Collaboration Sector based examples: Information Technology (IT-ISAC) Financial Services (FS-ISAC) Food Marketing Institute: Food and Agriculture ISAC Surface Transportation (ST-ISAC)
Contact points: and 5 Regional Information Sharing and Collaboration Regionally based examples: Minnesota (MN-ISAC) Pacific NorthWest Economic Region (PNWER) Center for Regional Disaster Resilience The New Jersey Business Force
Contact points: and 6 Information sharing issues Disparate semantic meaning Disparate syntactic representation Disparate information formatting
Contact points: and 7 Sharing proprietary data and services Security of data Selective data sharing Transport layers Melding the data into the Common Operational Picture
Contact points: and 8 Ontology Interoperability Getting the message = Getting the message (to the right places in the right presentation) Just in time information. (from the right places fitting the situation) Build knowledge : Use knowledge (through the right places to support decision making) Information must flow smoothly through detection, awareness, response, mitigation and recovery for ALL involved parties, to best aid Emergency Response Management.
