Incident Management Standards Group

Overview

The Incident Management family of standards, created primarily by the IEEE standards development organization, addresses the interfaces between an emergency management center and other centers. They provide the vocabulary (called data elements and messages) necessary to exchange information between ITS systems. Together, the ITS standards in this group apply to emergency management center interfaces (such as with a traffic management center, an emergency management center, or other centers). There is also a significant amount of reuse of data elements and messages across multiple interfaces; rather than repeat the entire list of standards for each architecture flow, we have created this summary entry the Incident Management (IEEE IM) Group of standards. 

This Group includes the following Standards Activities:
