Emergency services data integration standards adopted by Oasis

New emergency services data interoperability standards have been approved by e-business standards organisation Oasis.

New emergency services data interoperability standards have been approved by e-business standards organisation Oasis.

The new standards aim to improve critical data sharing among emergency services, government officials and law enforcement bodies.

The new Emergency Data Exchange Language Distribution Element (EDXL-DE) Version 1.0 has been approved as an Oasis standard.

This means the standards will now be used by emergency management systems suppliers, to help create data links among incompatible systems used by emergency first responders and others.

The new standards have already been adopted by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as well suppliers including ESI Acquisition, Raining Data, and Warning Systems.

Oasis said these and other organisations would use the new standards to enhance data sharing among emergency officials in times of disaster, terrorism or other critical situations.

The EDXL-DE standards were developed by the Oasis Emergency Management Technical Committee.
