Federal Guidelines
What is the National Fire Protection Agency? Print E-mail

The National First Protection Agency (NFPA) develops, publishes, and disseminates more than 300 consensus codes and standards intended to minimize the possibility and effects of fire and other risks. Virtually every building, process, service, design, and installation in society today is affected by NFPA standards.

What is the National Institute of Standards Technology? Print E-mail

Technology-based innovation remains one of the nation’s most important competitive advantages. Helping the U.S. to drive technological advancements is a top priority for the National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST). 


What is NEMSIS? Print E-mail

Many statewide EMS data systems have been created. However, these EMS systems vary in their ability to collect patient and systems data and allow analysis across local, state, and national levels. The NEMSIS project was developed to help states collect more standardized elements and eventually submit the data to a national EMS database.  NEMESIS is yet another emerging government standard with which Disaster Management Solutions complies.

What is the Public Health Information Network? Print E-mail

The Public Health Information Network (PHIN) is CDC’s vision for advancing robust, fully interoperable information systems among the organizations that participate in public health. A national initiative, PHIN is designed to elevate and integrate the capabilities of public health information systems across a wide variety of inter-related public health organizations.

Disaster Management Solutions’ SEOC and Engineering teams are constantly monitoring PHIN activities and standards. This careful attention, and DMS’ ‘predictive development’ VSE technology, ensures that the FirstTrak Suite will meet or exceed all PHIN standards.

What is the International Organization for Standardization Print E-mail

ISO is a network of the national standards institutes of 157 countries, on the basis of one member per country, with a Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland, that coordinates the system.

ISO is a non-governmental organization: its members are not, as is the case in the United Nations system, delegations of national governments. Nevertheless, ISO occupies a special position between the public and private sectors. This is because, on the one hand, many of its member institutes are part of the governmental structure of their countries, or are mandated by their government. On the other hand, other members have their roots uniquely in the private sector, having been set up by national partnerships of industry associations.
