Emergency Interoperability Consortium (EIC)
Overview: The Emergency Interoperability Consortium (EIC) was launched in October 2002 to address the lack of valid interoperability standards for emergency and incident management in the United States. The EIC was created as a collaborative effort between private companies, public agencies and non-profit organizations to address the problem in a open forum. EIC promoted the development and adoption of standards for using Web services, eXtensible Markup Language (XML), and existing exchange protocols that support the timely and accurate exchange of incident information throughout the emergency response communities.
