A Scenario is a list of required resources (human & equipment), along with a set of Map definitions (Viewport & maybe active layers)

Can be used for both Exercises & real Events.

  • Exercises should have all records marked with Drill
    • Notifications, Incident Reports



Portuguese Firefighters & Red Cross use a common standard for human resources skills defined by the Ministry of Health, which is certified by attending the requisite hours of training & passing both written & practical exams.

Skills are re-credentialled every 6 months:

  • checking minimum time of active duty (275 hrs)
  • a managerial performance rating: pass/fail

& 12 months:

  • checking minimum time of training (70 hrs)
  • a managerial performance rating: 1 (unfit) to 5 (well fitted for the work)
    • need at least 4 points for 5 years to be promoted in rank
  • attended refresher training course
  • Drivers have other standards (psycho-technical assessment every year)


  • Firefighter/EMT (150 hr course)
  • Firefighter/EMS (500 hr course inc some medical training and advanced life support)
<apocsantos> portuese standards for emergency personel are all clearly defined by law, and eveyone has diferente ID numbers for each specific trainning and an identification card
<apocsantos> for example my EMT Card Uniq Identifyer is 36031
<apocsantos> there is no-one in portugal not firefighter or from any other organization with the same EMT Trainning Certification Number
<apocsantos> all the "credential system" is based on uniq identifyers that can be "cross-check" bettween databases
<apocsantos> for example if i respond to a car accident while off dutty the portuguese authority's (police) ask me for the EMT Training ID and Firefighter ID
<apocsantos> they can radio in the ID's an have my credentials validated


Standardised Vehicle Types:

Locations, classified by Response Times to Incident Location:

  • Airport Crash
    • North of Terminal
      • within 5km radius: airport staff 1st in line
      • 5-20km radius: Vila do Conde (15 mins ETA. Morreira da maia have 10 min ETA, but they don't have the same resources)
    • South of Terminal
      • within 10km radius: airport staff 1st in line
      • 10+km radius: Oporto professional firefighters


We want a way of notifying the relevant human resources that they are required (which is a link between the required skills & the available skills).

  • ideally single button to send out the mobilisation notification
  • major emergencies require this to be done by a senior person

Taking shifts into account:

  • don't need this (always on-call)
  • American Red Cross have 12 hour alternating shift patterns
