APCO Seeks Work Group Members to Create a Standard for Conveyance of Emergency Incident Data
Alexandria, VA – The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International has issued a call for participation for work group members to participate in the creation of an ANSI standard addressing the Conveyance of Emergency Incident Data.
The Conveyance of the EIDD work group will focus on developing an ANSI accredited APCO/NENA Standard for transporting (conveying) Emergency Incident Data Documents (EIDDs) between systems (FEs). The data elements contained in EIDDs are defined in a soon to be released joint APCO/NENA ANS.
The new standard to be developed by this APCO/NENA work group will define how EIDDs are exchanged and transported from NG9-1-1 networks and systems. Expertise in information sharing and specifically in using web services and other protocols is desired. Operational expertise familiar with the needs for exchanging data between call takers and dispatchers, emergency responders and other user systems is also highly sought. We are looking for a well-balanced group that will include contributions from technical and operational subject matter experts. The time and day that the work group will meet is yet to be established.
All Interested persons should complete the online application and indicate their preference for this work group at SDC Application.
Application deadline is March 18, 2016. Selections will be made within two weeks of the deadline and all applicants will be notified of their status.
