     1== Disaster: Local Response ==
     4A community experiencing natural or man-made major disruption of daily activities.
     5This disruption may be:[[BR]]
     6Very Location Specific (e.g. sink-hole or explosion)[[BR]]
     7Distributed (e.g. volcanic plume or toxin release)[[BR]]
     8Regional (e.g. major tsunami or supply line degradation)[[BR]]
     10'''The Need'''[[BR]]
     11Standards Compliant and Federation-Enabled means to convey critical information through existing channels.[[BR]]
     12Zero Learning Curve interface.[[BR]]
     13Rapid, Reliable, Relevant information aggregation and display based upon user preferences or needs.[[BR]]
     14Data Escalation and Reporting tools to interactively share among stakeholders.[[BR]]
     15Feedback priority through direct communications and geographically relevant network connections.[[BR]]
     16Reduce necessity for pre-registration and Preparatory Exercises.[[BR]]
     17Enable rapid induction into the system while maintaining security features as needed.[[BR]]
     18Flexible communications networks and modes to accommodate a mix of interactions depending upon scenario.[[BR]]
     20=== Technology ===
     21Database utilizing location aware message aggregation and display.
     22Intermodal communication capability (SMS, HF data packet, Satellite data, Federated API interaction/updating, eMail, Social Networking)
     23Inter Agency coordination capacity (need allocation/claiming, inventory/replenishment push notifications, connect to outside project like Tweetstream Monitoring or Digital Humanitarian Response)
     27SMS requires pre-established phone numbers or means of rapidly disseminating new ones (FM Radio)
     28__With Cellco cooperation, broadcast may be utilized to contact all phone users within a radius of the affected area based upon existing cell tower function. Simple interface can record survey responses through voice or button press (e.g. "Are you injured?" or "Are buildings destroyed?") and present results in varied formats. Absence of response is also valuable information.__
     29Collecting output from the Tweetstream (or other service) is less effective than displaying output from volunteer groups filtering those streams.
     30Local messages can be sent to nearest neighbor or volunteer group in order to classify and prioritize the content. This 'second pass' will generate reliability scores for sender and neighbor.
     31Community Psychology and Group Interactive Theory should be gainfully utilized to prolong benevolent interactions post-event.
     32Self efficacy is the starting and ending point of all decision processes.
     34Phone: Feature or smart phone interface should be effective and non-language dependent. Consider self-generated icon sets within HL7 categories.
     36Tablet: Standards compliant, lightweight, low power requirement applications should provide easy to read and unambiguous interfaces
     38Computer: A variety of interface and data coordination standards should be accessible.
     40Thumb Drive: Regional representatives or community volunteers could have a thumb drive filled with local maps, tools to interact with other agencies or organizations, and gather relevant information for later transfer. A user should be able to walk up to any computer with thumb drive and feature phone and be able to interact intelligently.
