Case study notes[1]


Emergency Management Information System (EMIS) is a computer database for disaster response that provides graphical, real-time information to responders.[2]

How does it work or a deeper look[edit]

The nature and complexity of emergency management has grown significantly in the past decade. Along with this growth, there is an even greater growth in technological solutions and aids. Computers have been used for emergency planning, regulatory compliance, response to disaster situations, and recovery. Even application forms for disaster assistance have become electronic instruments. [3]

  • If you are discussing a THING YOU CAN TOUCH, you must explain how it works, and the parts it is made of. Google around for an "exploded technical diagram" of your thing, maybe like this example of an MRI It is likely you will reference outside links. Please attribute your work.
  • If you are discussing a PROCESS OR ABSTRACT CONCEPT (like fuzzy logic) you must deeply explain how it works.


Please include some example of how your concept is actually used. Your example must include WHERE it is used, and WHAT IS BENEFIT of it being used.

The Emergency Management Information System (EMIS) in Saudi Red Crescent Commission (SRCC) is a consolidated Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system that combines emergency centres, and medical dispatch services with modern Geographical Information System (GIS) real-time services (such as address verification, automatic vehicle location, automatic vehicle recommendation and routing, map displays) and online GIS updating to enhance emergency response.[4]

Pictures, diagrams[edit]

Pictures and diagrams go a LONG way to helping someone understand a topic. Especially if your topic is a little abstract or complex. Using a picture or diagram is a two part process:

  1. upload a file
  2. use the file on a wiki page
