5.7 - Coordinate Disaster Response and Evacuation DFDThis DFD shows the processes that make up the Manage Disaster Response and Evacuation facility within emergency management. These processes receive reported incident data that has been classified as a disaster, evacuation need, or other major emergency and initiate the appropriate coordination between agencies and appropriate response.
The key points about the facility are as follows:
- Facilities are provided to identify the current status of the transportation system.
- Coordination between multiple agencies is accomplished to form a response and recovery plan for a disaster or other major emergency.
- Coordination between multiple agencies is accomplished to manage an evacuation plan including the reentry to the area.
There are six processes in this DFD, one of which is a DFD:
a) Assess System Status For Disasters (5.7.1).
b) Provide Disaster Response Coordination (5.7.2).
c) Assess System Status For Evacuation (5.7.3).
d) Provide Evacuation Coordination (5.7.4).
e) Manage Evacuation (5.7.5).
f) Provide Safeguard System Control (DFD 5.7.6).
The data about incidents that has been declared a disaster or other major emergency is received by process (a). This process then collects information regarding the current status of the transportation network to establish the damage to equipment, infrastructure, etc. and what remains operational on the network. This data is then sent to process (b) which manages the coordination and formation of an appropriate response and recovery plan between multiple agencies. The response plan is then sent back to process (a) which forwards it to the Provide Emergency Services Allocation Functions in DFD 5.1. If an evacuation is needed, process (a) forwards all relevant information to process (c). This process reassesses the transportation network to determine what resources and facilities are available for use in the evacuation. This information is then forwarded to process (d) where a coordination effort between multiple agencies is managed to develop an evacuation and reentry plan for the evacuation area. The resulting evacuation plan is then sent to process (e) where the evacuation is managed. In both cases of the disaster response and evacuation, data about the current status of the transportation network and how well the plans are working is being reassessed by processes (a) and (c) so that the plans can be modified and improved as the disaster or evacuation progresses.
