emergency notification relay

Type: National

Description: The relay of a previously received emergency notification. This relay enables a connected vehicle or an equipped personal information device (PID) that is passing within radio range of a vehicle or PID in need of assistance to store the notification and then forward it to a public safety agency when communications is available. Multiple relays may be necessary in remote areas with infrequent traffic and spotty communications coverage. The relay includes all of the information included in the original emergency notification (see 'emergency notification') and relay-specific data that can be used to manage the relay. Relay-specific data may include the date and time of original emergency notification receipt and the number of times the message has been relayed.
