It is common knowledge that having an individual or family disaster plan is vital for saving lives and property before, during and after a disaster. First responders have the daunting task of helping many people during a disaster. It would make their jobs easier if people had disaster plans before a disaster. However, for a variety of reasons, few people have a disaster plan. People often do not develop disaster plans due to the time required to devise a plan, a lack of knowledge of the benefits of having a plan, or the effort required for the primarily manual process of developing a disaster plan. Wilberforce University has designed a solution called Wilberforce's Information Library Boosting Emergency Recovery (WILBER) which is a customized, online tool to quickly and automatically generate disaster plans to help save lives and property as well as mitigate the impacts of a potential disaster. WILBER utilizes an interdisciplinary approach to automatically generate a basic disaster preparedness plan. The system addresses a wide range of disasters but focuses on floods, earthquakes and technological disasters such as terrorism and nuclear disasters. WILBER automatically processes locally relevant data intelligently and combines mathematical analysis; distributed computing; individual and business risk management; current and historical information from a comprehensive Geographical Information Systems (GIS) that includes imagery, infrastructure, demographic, and environmental data; and wireless sensors for real time condition assessment. Not planning for a disaster only increases the potential magnitude of a disaster. WILBER allows citizens to quickly establish immediate procedures in the event of an emergency which in turn can lessen the burden on first responders and reduces the likelihood of loss of life. This research is funded by the Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration and conducted by the Wilberforce University Disaster Recovery Center in Wilberforce, Ohio, USA.
