Interoperability for Emergency Response Officials

25/01/10

It has become commonplace for Emergency Response Officials (EROs) to encounter a rapid rise in false identification at incident scenes while simultaneously being unable to rapidly and accurately verify qualifications of on-scene personnel. Currently, many States and municipalities have already issued credentials to their ERO populations to provide an identification badge that can be used to quickly identify EROs in an emergency situation.

Relying parties securing a perimeter or site within the jurisdiction recognize the credential, allowing EROs to pass the access point to do their jobs. These currently issued credentials are easily forged, however, and thus have given opportunity to those seeking to enter a disaster scene under false pretenses.

This whitepaper from CoreStreet examines the idea of providing interoperable machine readable credentials in order to enable quick response by those with the requisite skills to address the needs of an incident.
