This work focuses on how individuals interact and make collective decisions during crisis situations. We developed a prototype to aid the decision-making process by focusing on how to facilitate the “correct information to the correct agent” problem as well as encouraging new and agile behaviour. Our software is based on real life case studies documented during Hurricane Katrina and the Fukoshima Nuclear disaster and an analysis of social media communications during Hurricane Sandy. Communication is broken down into three categories (command, report and personal) and we developed a formal grammar for these. IntCris is then the implementation of this formal grammar (all communications requirements) as well as additional features essential for interaction during such circumstances
