5.3.7: Provide Emergency Vehicle Route

This process shall calculate and assign emergency vehicle routes for incident assistance upon request. This process shall use inputs from the Manage Traffic function, the Manage Maintenance and Construction function, and Rail Operations to determine what the conditions of the roadway are and what detours, closures, and restrictions may affect the routing of the emergency vehicle. If called for, the process shall send details to the Manage Traffic function to request a traffic control preemption be provided for the vehicle(s) if that mode of preemption is available and chosen. The data for the emergency vehicle driver shall be sent to the driver interface process. This process shall provide an interface to the care facilities to which emergency vehicles may be routed. This care facility interface shall be used to decide which care facility is open and ready to receive patients. This process shall interface with a map update system to maintain an accurate digital map for routing purposes. Once the route is calculated the route is provided to the dispatch function and a record of the assigned route is provided to the assessment function. This process shall receive and accept inputs from the process that interfaces with the emergency system operator to manage the routing function.
