Satellite Earth Stations and Systems (SES); Reference scenario for the deployment of emergency communications; Part 2: Mass casualty incident in public transportation
|Publication Date:||1 May 2015|
The present document defines a reference scenario for a mass-transportation accident (MTA) in a rural environment. The scenario includes definition of the responders involved and their gross communication needs without specifying the network technologies involved. Finally the topology modelling of the responders involved is defined, in terms of their disposition in the incident area, their time evolution and their movements (if any).
The scenario is not generic in the sense of representing all emergencies of this type, but is intended to be a "typical" example, and thus a reference in order to allow evaluation and dimensioning of required overall emergency telecommunications.
The regulations and operating procedures for emergency responses vary between countries; for example the organization responsible for the overall emergency management can be the police, the fire or rescue organization, a dedicated organization for this purpose (e.g. civil protection), or others.
The response services defined for these scenarios are limited to safety-related services (i.e. not security such as law enforcement).
Casualties and personnel not active in the rescue operations (e.g. the press) have been excluded, as their communications needs are not covered by the emergency communication systems considered here, but their needs are considered in ETSI TR 102 410 [i.2].
