Updated Version Now Available! Guidance on Information Sharing Standards

November 23, 2021

The National Alliance for Public Safety GIS (NAPSG) Foundation is pleased to release the third version of the Implementation Guidance: Information Sharing Standards for Crisis Management Mutual Aid Technology. 

Previous versions of the guidance addressed two specific audiences (i.e., Public Safety Leaders and Technologists/Vendors) in a single document. The third version has broken the guidance into two separate documents:

  • Job Aid: Incident Management Technology – Aids in determining the appropriate standards and implementation options based on specific operational needs and requirements. This document is focused on the role of Public Safety Leaders.  
  • Technical Guide: Incident Management Technology – Provides technical guidance on information sharing standards and specific workflows for technically implementing the various information sharing standards available today. This document is focused on the role of Technologists and Vendors. 

In addition, the Job Aid has been adapted into an interactive StoryMap.
