Architecture Flow Definitions
alert notification (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Notification of a major emergency such as a natural or man–made disaster, civil emergency, or child abduction for distribution to the public. The flow identifies the alert originator, the nature of the emergency, the geographic area affected by the emergency, the effective time period, and information and instructions necessary for the public to respond to the alert. This flow may also identify specific information that should not be released to the public.
alert notification coordination (Planned)
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.
alert status (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Information indicating the current status of the emergency alert including identification of the traveler and driver information systems that are being used to provide the alert.
emergency plan coordination (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Information that supports coordination of emergency management plans, continuity of operations plans, emergency response and recovery plans, evacuation plans, and other emergency plans between agencies. This includes general plans that are coordinated prior to an incident and shorter duration tactical plans that are prepared during an incident.
emergency transit schedule information (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Information on transit schedule and service changes that adapt the service to better meet needs of responders and the general public in an emergency situation, including special service schedules supporting evacuation.
emergency transit service request (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Request to modify transit service and fare schedules to address emergencies, including requests for transit services to evacuate people from and/or deploy response agency personnel to an emergency scene. The request may poll for resource availability or request pre–staging, staging, or immediate dispatch of transit resources.
emergency transit service response (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Response indicating changes to transit service, fares, and/or restrictions that will be made and status of transit resources to be deployed to support emergency response and/or evacuation.
evacuation coordination (Planned)
Coordination of information regarding a pending or in–process evacuation. Includes evacuation zones, evacuation times, evacuation routes, forecast network conditions, and reentry times.
evacuation information (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Evacuation instructions and information including evacuation zones, evacuation times, and reentry times.
incident command information coordination (Planned)
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 information (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Notification of existence of incident and expected severity, location, time and nature of incident. As additional information is gathered and the incident evolves, updated incident information is provided. Incidents include any event that impacts transportation system operation ranging from routine incidents (e.g., disabled vehicle at the side of the road) through large–scale natural or human–caused disasters that involve loss of life, injuries, extensive property damage, and multi–jurisdictional response. This also includes special events, closures, and other planned events that may impact the transportation system.
incident notification (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
The notification of an incident including its nature, severity, and location.
incident notification response (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Interactive acknowledgement and verification of the incident information received, requests for additional information, and general information on incident response status.
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 (Planned)
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.
incident response status (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Status of the current incident response including a summary of incident status and its impact on the transportation system, traffic management strategies implemented at the site (e.g., closures, diversions, traffic signal control overrides), and current and planned response activities.
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 (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Threats regarding transportation infrastructure, facilities, or systems detected by a variety of methods (sensors, surveillance, threat analysis of advisories from outside agencies, etc.
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.
transit emergency data (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Initial notification of transit emergency at a transit stop or on transit vehicles and further coordination as additional details become available and the response is coordinated.
transit system status assessment (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Assessment of damage sustained by the public transportation system including location and extent of the damage, current operational status including an estimate of remaining capacity and necessary restrictions, and time frame for repair and recovery.
transportation system status (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
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.
