Emergency Resource Messaging

The new OASIS Emergency Data Exchange Language Resource Messaging (EDXL-RM) Specification is being released for public comment this week. Since I am part of the development team for the specification, I can obviously be of assistance to those who wish to implement. I also have a complete understanding of the EDXL Distribution Element Specification and how it is used as a transport wrapper for EDXL-RM. The final kicker is FEMA’a new Integrated Pubic Alert and Warning System (IPAWS). It will use the EDXL-DE as its mechanism for message transport. I will be among the first to prototype its operational capability. The obvious project I would like to put first in my queue is to help a government agency at any level or a private company in the emergency management software space be IPAWS ready with both alerting and resource messaging capabilities.
