Emergency Management > Response & Recovery > Early Warning System


The variety of sensors deployed on the transportation infrastructure can help provide an early warning system to detect large-scale emergencies including natural disasters (hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, winter storms, tsunamis, etc.) and technological and man-made disasters (HAZMAT incidents, nuclear power plant accidents, and acts of terrorism including nuclear, chemical, biological, and radiological weapons attacks). Early warning systems monitor alerting and advisory systems, ITS sensors and surveillance systems, field reports, and emergency call-taking systems to identify emergencies and notify all responding agencies of detected emergencies.
