FDOT District 5 Regional ITS Architecture (Final)

Element: Other Public Safety Communications and Dispatch Centers


Description: This element represents the connection to other state (FHP and FDLE), County (Sheriff and Fire Rescue), and Local (municipal police and fire departments) law enforcement, fire, and EMS call taker and dispatch centers. It may include campus law enforcement providers, volunteer fire/rescue departments, federal law enforcement agencies, federal homeland security agencies, and other centers established for major incidents. This element is used in the architecture to show a consistent interface for the exchange of data between public safety systems that supports incident notification, hand-offs, resource coordination, and incident response coordination. Communication between these centers uses a mesh topology - any emergency management center can communicate directly with any other emergency management center. Note that this element also represents interfaces to emergency management centers in adjacent jurisdictions that also coordinate during major incidents.
