information on hazardous materials
How can private companies contribute to the public safety by automatically sharing their information regarding transport and storage of hazardous materials?
When sufficiently incentivized, these companies could highly contribute to a truly dynamic and even live risk profile of regions, cities and smaller areas. This dynamic profile could contribute massively to preventing or containing mayor disasters, as rescuers know where all hazardous materials (close to) the epicenter of the disaster are.
Dutch Safety Consortium
Instituut Fysieke Veiligheid (IFV), Ministry of Justice & Safety, the Dutch Safety Region Friesland, Safety Region Groningen and Safety Region Rotterdam and a collaboration of all Dutch public-safety answering points (PSAP, Meldkamer in Dutch),which serve as the communications hub of all safety organizations (like Fire dept., Police, etc.) in the Netherlands.
DOMAIN EXPERTS PRESENT AT THE HACKATHON
Hazardous materials experts from transport companies
Hazardous materials advisors from the fire brigade
RIVM (Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment)
DCMR (Rijmond Region Environmental Service)
To enclose the open source data the safety regions develop an Enterprise Service Bus (starts January 2019).
TYPE OF TEAM ELIGIBLE TO APPLY
Pre-Startup & Startup
OPEN SOURCE OR PROPRIETARY
We want to further improve the suppression of hazardous materials road accidents in order to make the suppression activities more safe, less time consuming, and less lost of cargo and infrastructure.
Ambition and goals
Having real time trustworthy information (live feed of civilians / sensors) at the accident scene during the suppression;
Track record in innovation and working to accelerate with teams/companies
To be announced.

Dutch collaboration of the public-safety answering points
IFV would like to welcome the following type of organizations in their consortium: Inspection (IL&T), Transportation company, KNMI, Infraprovider, RIVM, DCMR. Furthermore, They need representatives / agents of transport companies, IT (blockchain) specialists.
What does the partner offer. The Netherlands consists of 25 independent Safety Regions. IFV offers winning teams to present their solution to the hazardous materials working group of fire fighting Netherlands and the districts represents, to further help them.
What do consortium partners offer. They offer an entrance in the network of the Dutch Crisis- and Disastermanagement.
They offer possibilities to pitch your solution on a national level or specifically within certain safety regions. Safety regions share a lot of information, so when a solution works very well in Safety Region X, than the chance that this solution will be implemented in other Safety Regions increases. The better your solution, how bigger the chance that your solution will be adapted on national scale
