Responder Health Schema (object name: pHealth)
Describes the health and direct environmental information of a responder
This schema utilizes the following naming conventions for the beginning character of the Short Index name:
This schema makes use of a 4-index grouping for the accelerometer:
This structure produces a small increase in the size of the object but makes the data significantly more readable.
This schema shows the value of the global index parameter. With these global values, the developer can take environmental measurements and include them in a responder health object to transmit the immediate environmental conditions at the responder’s location.
As referenced in the body of the document earlier, there is a significant problem in identifying an individual in a consistent manner. Attributes for a responder could include identifiers such as:
In IoT systems, the data values obtained tend to be sent to a larger sever. In such systems, a responder ID is often assigned. As an example, that may be the primary key for the responder table in that server’s database. The burden is then on that server to use information about the role that responder has in the incident to provide better and more universal identification.
