Explore a real-life scenario
A train derailment causes a massive explosion
Following a massive explosion, emergency services agencies establish an incident command centre to provide situational awareness, manage the disaster and help route the first responders to the scene.
A toxic spill endangers people and property
Hazmat teams identify the toxin as chlorine. The command centre uses real-time weather sensors and plume modelling to identify the area impacted by the spill and immediately commences an outreach program to inform residents.
Responders identify critical infrastructure and put roadblocks in place
The map provides a breakdown of the types of critical infrastructure and population impacted within the area of the spill. Law enforcement agencies set up roadblocks around the area to keep people out.
Victims get help while incident details emerge
First responders identify evacuation shelters and set up a triage location to treat victims while law enforcement officials begin their investigation into the crash and interview witnesses. The public information officer briefs the media and residents.
Agencies manage the response through information sharing across the community
Back at the incident command centre, emergency personnel continue to analyse incoming information from response teams. Damage assessment reports come in from first responders, and social media feeds are brought into the map to monitor public information.
