Australians play a major role in bringing the community together.
By enabling the responsible citizens & leaders to be early respondents, supporting the Emergency management systems, the power of human volume will make a positive impact on how we manage Emergency in future.
The Citizen in Touch Prototype / concept enables this by embedding technology with available tools from Telstra and publicly available data feeds.
Citizenintouch - Bringing Gov and community closer
This includes the way we approach emergency notification and communication.
The solution envisages a process & technology to support emergency management function.
Bringing more people volunteers to be part of emergency event management.
Using verification process to ensure and improve reliability of information.
Provide citizens with encouragements, even virtual such as one we coined as AussieMerits or other government supported ways.
The Leader plays a role and the technology supports in wider reach of community communication.
The wider people can make use of this technology to be better informed and helping in faster decision on the steps in terms of an emergency.
Citizen Police - observer their locality & report to their contact points in government in case of any breach to rules & regulations affecting general public
Citizen Respondents - volunteers who would report any safety hazards, accidents, fires to the authorities
Local Community Leader - to the people registered for community notification with diverse language and remote nature.
Citizen-in-Touch brings additional ownership to emergency warning by enabling and encouraging verified & trust-able citizens to contribute to public safety.
It allows leaders to be closer to the people and talk in their language using AI technologies and Telecom for faster response.
With usage of technology and support from respectable organisations like Telstra, this solution can bring a different human-centric approach to how we deal with Emergency in future.
