Alert4All: An Integrated Concept for Effective Population Alerting in Crisis Situations
2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents an overview of the Alert4All concept, an innovative pan-European integrated and scalable approach to improve the effectiveness of alert and communication systems for the population. The Alert4All is a system-oriented scalable concept that considers human, technological and management aspects for two purposes: on the one hand to implement improvements to key elements of the alert system (such as communications channels, including satellite) and on the other hand, to develop and exploit synergies between such elements (e.g. by simulation and web monitoring). In particular, Alert4All provides solutions to align alert procedures and processes to contemporary crises (natural or man-made), available and emerging technologies, available information sources and trends in social behaviour in a scalable manner, from a regional to a pan-European perspective.
