Sample text

The socalled DRC (Disaster Research Center) typology characterizes responding organizations in terms of the relationship between the organization’s everyday activities and operating structure, and those it assumes during a response. 2): Established organizations normally engage in response activities, and their operational structure is unchanged during responses. Expanding organizations routinely engage in response activities, however, they must expand their operational structure to do so, typically by recruiting volunteers.

Responses to differently scaled events differ in the amount of and dependence on emergent behaviors and organizations (spontaneous responses by individuals and organizations not normally Disaster Catastrophic disaster Only part of single community and official jurisdiction affected Hours–weeks Local emergency Scope Duration Terms adopted here Sources: Quarantelli (2005) and Dynes (1998). S. S. 2 DRC Typology of Organizations Participating in Response Tasks Same as pre-disaster Operational Organizational Structure New Routine I.

The framework focuses on three categories of problem features, related to users, tasks, and contexts, respectively. These are key categories of problem features in any user interface design problem, and the framework concentrates on characteristics that are peculiar to disaster response, including responder procedural and declarative knowledge, task generalizability and structure, physical and informational resources offered by the working context. While applicable to any technology used in response, the framework is aimed primarily at information technologies.
