Basics of civil protection and disaster assistance

Not only conventional , but also

Disaster Management Cycle

Preparedness Prevention and Mitigation
Hazard prediction and modeling Risk assessment and mapping Spatial Planning Structural & non structural measures Public Awareness & Education.. Scenarios development Emergency Planning Training


Real time monitoring & forecasting Early warning Secure &dependable telecom Scenario identification all media alarm

new threats are in the focus of public discussion: - Terrorism - Attacks on buildings housing huge crowds of people - Extreme weather phenomena - Temporary breakdown of civilian infrastructure Possible consequences: - Large numbers of victims - Damage situations covering large areas - Intensive disaster relief - Great demands on the coordination of relief and rescue measures

Post Disaster
Lessons learnt Scenario update Socio-economic and environmental impact assessment Spatial (re)planning

Response Recovery
Early damage assessment Re-establishing life-lines transport &communication infrastructure

Two groups of data regarding to the actuality
1 Static Data:

Actors in Disaster Management

European Union
Monitoring and Information Centre (MIC)

POIs (location of hospitals) Population technical data of vehicles or instruments contact persons in committees or health organisation and all information on support-potentials for personnel, material and infrastructure
2 Dynamic Data:

National Level
Civil Protection

current meteorological data (observations, measurement results, etc.) readings of the ra-dioactivity measuring network current level of rivers and streams, and also forecast data of various other hazard warning systems

Challenges for disaster management

Relatively small market Cooperation between actors and decision making User awareness and education Harmonization across the EU Interoperability Access to data
Many data sources with difference access conditions

Services for disaster management

Services derive from disaster management cycle Data integration Location analysis: what is happening where Decision making support Communication First aid: who is where in need of what .

ICT for Disaster Management

ICT is pivotal for disaster prevention and management Need for an Integrated Information System Response to crisis situations is limited by weak preparedness, lack of interoperability among involved organisations, inadequate early warning Measurement is critical
Need for sensors

Components of a DM solution
Situation mapping
Interactive and individualized mapping with annotations

Resource Management
Up to data information on all resources

Communication and Reporting

Different communication mechanisms Reporting for lessons learnt and training

Interoperability is important with respect to
Data, technology, organization

Thank you for your attention !

Need for an integrated information system covering all aspects of disaster management Need for clear rules for data access and cooperation
