Community Augmented Rapid-response to Events (CARE) Integrated Crisis Communication System

The objective of this project is to establish a crisis rapid-response communication system, which is augmented with location-specific social and community data, and integrated with current Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) crisis identification and response communication processes. This will be achieved through development of a system that leverages social and community data for detecting, validating, and more effectively communicating specific routine or emergency events. The system development and integration proposed in this project aims to supplement current GDOT crisis identification and response management systems in place in terms of speed, coverage, effectiveness, efficiency, situational awareness, and inclusiveness, and support day-to-day decision making and response operations, as well as state of emergency events and long-term planning. A central focus of this specific three year project will be to examine ongoing events occurring in Georgia with augmented social and community data.
