This is the Standards Requirements Package for the Emergency Management Subsystem to Other Centers. It includes the following main components: General introduction to the scope and intent of this package; Message transaction sets; Decomposition of the interfaces; Communications layer description; Constraints; and Data dictionary element definitions and sizes. Emergency response and emergency management are recognized as key factors in both traveler safety and in congestion reduction. As MPOs design strategies for integrated incident management, an important component is invariably interagency coordination and data exchange. The National ITS Architecture envisions a high degree of cooperation between traffic management, transit, media/information providers, and emergency management. Through coordinated responses to emergencies, safety and service can be enhanced. This package collects the requirements from the architecture to support the data exchange necessary for this type of coordination.
