Client’s Concern Area
The state of Kerala is frequently ravaged by the disastrous consequences of coastal erosion, lightning, landslides, floods, drought and petro-chemical transportation related accidents. Other relatively less frequent but significant phenomena capable of causing disastrous consequences are windfall of trees, earthquakes, intense rainfall, pest attack, forest fire, chemical transportation and storage related accidents.
The State Emergency Operations Centre of Kerala State Disaster Management Authority under the State Relief Commissioner (Principal Secretary, Revenue and Disaster Management) coordinates and advises on emergency operations, issues disaster alerts and early warnings in the State.
‘Surakshaayanam’ (Kerala State Emergency Management System) is aimed at effective event management of resources in case of disasters and emergencies. This solution aims at effective management of multiple Emergency incidents and events and help officials take informed decisions.
Overview of Our Solution
In case of any emergency an event will be generated on IBM IOC. Once the event has been generated the operators will receive alerts and notifications on a common dashboard. Alerts will also be sent to higher officials, management and stakeholders. Notification will be in form of email or SMS alert. Once an event is reported on IOC the operator will then coordinate with multiple departments to perform the related Standard Operating Procedures. Operators can filter down the nearby resources like ambulance, fire brigade, hospitals, schools etc. to quickly locate the nearby resource and take the necessary actions. SOP’s can be triggered manually or automatically. The alerts which are reported at the call-centre by calls can be triggered manually and operators will then follow the SOP’s to effectively manage the emergency situation.
