Supported Use Cases

PROTECT UC-01 resource management

This UC illustrates the PROTECT resource management concept and functionality.

PROTECT receives information on the incident occurring from some external entity and starts the following workflow:

  1. Local Operational Centre (LOC) completes the information on the incident
  2. National Operational Centre (NOC) is informed
  3. LOC requests assistance for any local, regional or international civil protection organization already registered in Protect
  4. LOC uses PROTECT to collect offers for assistance from any civil protection organization
  5. NOC also offers for assistance
  6. LOC accepts or refuse the offers
  7. LOC informs all involved entities about the resources now available

Information exchange with external entities and systems is realised using EMSI protocol.
