Optimizing resource management in emergency management & response
2009 Edition, November 1, 2009 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Dealing with life threatening situations demands efficiency and effectiveness of operations including optimizing the emergency response time, and utilizing resources and personnel as best appropriate for each incident. In this paper, we look at the efforts of the...

A resource-based decision support tool for emergency response management
2015 Edition, November 1, 2015 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In an emergency event, the efficient and effective management of medical resources reduces response times and better meets the patient's needs. However, the heterogeneity of types of resources (e.g., crews and expertise levels, vehicles, hospital capacity) and needs of...

Social Fairness in Multi-Emergency Resource Management
2006 Edition, June 1, 2006 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Resource management is a well studied field. Existence of multiple emergencies in a locality, in a time overlapped manner, demands an optimal allocation of required resources to the emergencies. This is an intricate problem if the availability of resources...

Resource Conflict Checking and Resolution Controller Design for Cross-Organization Emergency Response Processes
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

A group of geographically dispersed and logically collaborated emergency organizations are involved when emergency occurs. Two challenging issues are a reasonable emergency resource allocation mechanism and an efficient resource conflict checking and resolution...

ASTM E2668-10 - Standard Guide for Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Development (Withdrawn 2019)
September 1, 2010 - ASTM International

A critical part of developing an emergency management capability is establishing and preparing to operate an EOC. A well-designed EOC, coupled with well-trained personnel, will enable the coordination of response and recovery activities. An EOC can serve as an effective and...

Scalable framework for emergency response Decision Support Systems
2015 Edition, April 1, 2015 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

While responding to a disaster, emergency responders and managers make critical decisions based on limited available information. These decisions are critical for public safety and disaster recovery operation. There are many Decision Support Systems (DSS) available to assist the...

Role management diversity in emergency situations
2010 Edition, November 1, 2010 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In emergency organizations, shift planning and role management of human resources are basis for managing daily operative work. However, it is challenging due to the emergencies' situation-driven demands and varying human resource needs. Emergencies can be...

Framework of Operation Management of Emergency Response Supply Chain Based on Fuzzy Clustering
2011 Edition, August 1, 2011 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

For an effective and timely acquisition, deployment, and distribution of needed resources in emergencies, it is crucial to provide the end-to-end visibility of emergency response supply chain to the involved parties and improve its operation management. There are...

Volunteer Reputation evaluation for emergency response operations
2015 Edition, November 1, 2015 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Natural and man-made disasters are constantly occurring leading to human casualties, infrastructure destruction and financial losses. Volunteers and volunteer organizations play a significant role in each and every phase of disaster management. Therefore, selecting and retaining...

Modeling Emergency Response Systems
2007 Edition, January 1, 2007 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This paper discusses a model for an emergency response system. The model is based on a review of the literature and the incorporation of lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina response. The paper takes a holistic view of a system in that an emergency...
