There has been a lack of meaningful information systems architecture, which comprehensively conceptualise the essential components and functionality of an information
system for fire emergency response addressing needs of different job roles. This study proposes a comprehensive information systems architecture which would best support four of the key fire-fighter job roles.
The study has built on the outcomes of two previous preliminary studies on information and human-computer interaction needs of core fire fighter job roles. Scenario based action research was conducted with fire fighters in a range of roles, to evaluate human computer interaction needs while using various technology platforms.
Several key themes were identified and led us to propose several layers of an integrated architecture, their composition and interactions.
The selected fire scenarios may not represent every type of fire expected in high risk built environments.
The current paper represents a shared discussion among end users, system architects and designers, to understand and improve essential components. It, therefore, provides a reference point for the development of an information system architecture for fire emergency response.
The proposed information system architecture is novel because it outlines specific architectural elements required to meet the specific situation awareness needs of four of the key firefighters job roles.|
