5.7.1: Assess System Status For Disasters

This process shall be responsible for collecting data relevant to an emergency regarding a disaster. It will collect data previously identified as disaster related data from the detect and verify emergencies function. It also collects information related to the current status of the transportation system. The status of the transportation system is assessed to determine facilities, structures, equipment, etc. that have been damaged or destroyed and what remains operational along with the general state of operations for the system. Collected information is then filtered and used to assist in establishing a coordinated disaster response and recovery plan. The complete view of the transportation system status is also forwarded to other management centers (e.g. transit, traffic, maintenance and construction, rail operations, other emergency management, etc.) to provide them with a view of the system that is available for disaster response and recovery operations.
