ISO/TR 22351 Societal security – Emergency management – Message structure for exchange of information

Clear situation awareness is a key factor for effective emergency response. The building of an operational picture is based on the integration and assessment of information collected from the different teams of responders and other information sources. It relies on exchange of information. The ability to exchange information in a timely and secure manner is critical to the effective conduct of emergency management.

This Technical Report (TR) describes a message structure for the exchange of information between organisations involved in emergency management. An organisation can ingest the received information, based on the message structure, in its own operational picture.

The structured message is called EMSI (Emergency Management Shared Information).

ISO/TR 22351 describes the message structure built in order to facilitate interoperability between existing and new information systems.

The intended audience of ISO/TR 22351 is control room engineers, information systems designers and decision makers in emergency management.
