CCC addressed

Scope, rationale, context: general description. Precise here if this technology is currently use (eg. company name or contact info) Different EWSs have been developed for various categories of crises/disasters, which are based on specific models and cater to various decision support needs. There is no general methodology to be followed by organizations that are exposed to risks. Throughout this research, we aim to put a general methodology and set standard rules for risk-prone organizations or sectors that need an early warning system to prevent or at least reduce these risks. This research suggests a generic EWIS model that can be adapted to the dynamic needs of the field of crisis management. The generic model is made up of a series of sub-models, each of which consists of a set of processes that are connected together based on their functions. The generic model can be used - with some modifications-in any type of EWIS. The information systems that uses the proposed generic model will provide decision makers, governments and people with alerts to prevent or at least reduce the risks of crises and disasters.
