What are some different types of computer-aided dispatch software?
The operation of today's public safety communications centers is dependent upon information and the ability to manage it. That requirement, in turn, depends heavily upon computer-aided dispatch software. Examples are: EnRoute Emergency Systems, InterAct Public Safety Systems, Intergraph Public Safety, etc.
Are most 911 centers using dispatch software these days?
What purpose emergency centers and emergency commanders centers serve in the protection of personal and property?
The general answer is that, in emergency situations, the duties of the incident commander is to protect life safety, property, and the environment in that order. Life safety always comes first. Sometimes judgments must be made on property vs. the environment, particularly when protecting the environment involves important resources that are used by significant populations, such as drinking water. Emergency operations centers generally leave these decisions up to on-scene incident commanders and focus on resource managment and recovery efforts.
Is it true or false that typically requests for resources flow from the on scene incident command through the local and state emergency operations centers to the federal government?

How is IT being used in the field of safety?
You may need to ask a more specific question in order to get the answer you're looking for. I can speak to some of the ways IT is used in the field of Public Safety. For starters, many dispatch(911) centers now use computer aided dispatch. This allows them to more reliably dispatch needed resources to the proper location, to better track emergency units, and to enter information more efficiently. Computers are also used to quickly bring up information such as driver license data and criminal records.
