5.1.1 - Detect and Verify Emergencies

This page shows the collection of processes that make up the Detect and Verify Emergencies facility within the Provide Emergency Service Allocation function. These processes receive reported incident data from a number of inputs including 911 call takers, mayday service providers, weather services, commercial vehicle operations, and transit agencies. This process then coordinates the inputs in order to pass on the verified incident to the process to Determine the Coordinated Response Plan as well as other functions within Provide Emergency Service Allocation.

The key points about the facility are as follows:
- Facilities are provided to identify the type of emergency dependent on source;
- Includes sensors and surveillance processing to detect emergencies and possible threat conditions;
- Verified emergencies are passed onto other ITS functions.

There are 4 processes in this collection and one is a collection of lower level processes itself. The others are lower level Process Specifications (PSpecs) that are assigned to Physical Objects in the CVRIA physical view.

1) Coordinate Emergency Inputs (PSpec
2) Identify Commercial Vehicle Emergencies (PSpec
3) Collect Incident and Event Data (PSpec
