COORDINATORs: TAEMS Modeling and Interfacing for First Response

John Phelps and Valerie Guralnik

We have developed a system to assist first responders called COORDINATORs. COORDINATORs are coordination managers for fielded first responders and their commanders. Each fielded first responder or first responder team is paired with a COORDINATOR coordination manager which runs on a mobile computing device. Building on our existing COORDINATORs system, much exciting work remains to enable them to adapt to dynamic, large-scale crises such as a those caused by natural phenomena (earthquake or hurricane) or by a terrorist attack, where the crisis is characterized by multi-point concurrent incidents spread across a large geographic area and where multiple organizations or teams responding presents an enormous challenge that we are addressing with current and future work.
