INCLUSIVE SAFETY COMMUNITIES
How might we match the right citizen to the right emergency situation in order to help professionals and create a community that contributes to safety?
September 11 – 13
September 11 – 13
Create a privacy by design data sharing infrastructure, enabling anyone and anything to share relevant (personal) data during specific incidents and crises. Therefore, allowing both citizens and professionals to help resolve emergency situations based on their skills, expertise and means.
It is unacceptable that in these days of connectivity, relevant information about specific needs and available expertise is not available in emergency situations. In order to realize an optimal approach in and towards an emergency situation, data has to be shared. Data of potential victims and of willing and able volunteers (stakeholders) that can be of help in that specific emergency situation.
The centralized incident response system, where the government is the ‘supplier’ and the civilian the ‘client’ is the worldwide standard and the concept to disrupt in this challenge. By allowing everyone with relevant knowledge, skills and means to participate, the emergency response system becomes much more effective and powerful.
We can create a society where we are all safety contributors, not safety consumers, by changing the dispatch center’s role, automating demand and supply, and using valuable civilian contributions to extend emergency services capacities, redefining civilian collaboration.
A WINNING TEAM WILL...
Be aware of existing initiatives to connect with and reuse what is already there.
Incentivize civilians and other stakeholders (cities) to join and contribute to any incident and any incident driven community.
