This document is part of a set of deliverables being produced by the IJIS Institute/APCO
Public Safety Data Interoperability Program (PSDI). The overall program is anticipated to encompass multiple projects, and is focused on advancing open, standards-based information sharing to support the emergency communications domains – law enforcement, fire, and EMS – and related homeland security domains. The results of this first project will set the foundation for future projects to create high-value, first responder National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) exchanges.
The goal of this initial project is to improve real-time information sharing capabilities in the emergency response environment. Primarily, the program aims to define a strategy for the adoption and use of NIEM as the standard for sharing critical information between emergency communications centers and public safety agencies, within and across jurisdictions, and with other relevant emergency management and intelligence domains of the federal government, as well as to define a CAD Exchange List of high-value exchanges.
