CERT: Community Emergency Response Teams
Original Problem Definition:
- This site needs moving from Healthscapes to Zen
- Each volunteer who completes the CERT basic training program will be entered into the database.
- Web-accessible user interface allows volunteers to update selected information on their account.
- Primary & secondary admins from any CERT group can create an "Event", which can be a disaster, drill, exercise, training, etc.
- [Event = Project in current Eden terminology. Ideally want a simple deployment setting to convert between the 2 terms]
- After creating an event, the admin may search for volunteers to respond to that event by specifying specific skills, location and interests.
- the majority of deployments are 3-8 hours, but I can imagine one lasting longer. However, we could create separate events for each day
- They will be assigned tasks by the IC when they get to the deployment location. I don't think that would be part of this system.
- [We can use Sahana Eden 'Tasks' to manage deployments]
- A request for volunteers is sent by email, SMS and Google Talk to the search result set.
- Volunteers can respond by email, SMS or Google Talk to be deployed, and will then receive a second communication with deployment details
- Q: Why not send them the complete details initially, to help them decide if they want to volunteer?
- The second message is still important for confirmation though. - michael.howden
- [lauralanford] We want to avoid spontaneous participants - if deployment details are only sent to confirmed responders, there is less likelihood of unplanned volunteers showing up on site.
- Once the requested number of volunteers has been met, a second communication will be sent to those who have not yet responded that the request has been filled.
- A list will be generated with the names and skillsets of the volunteers to be deployed and sent to the event incident commander.
- When a volunteer arrives at the event scene, he / she can text or email a confirmation of arrival to the system.
- When a volunteer leaves the event scene, confirmation of exit.
- If a volunteer has not confirmed exit by the closure of the event, a notice is generated and sent to the IC and the admin who created the event.
