SATWAYS – Collaborative Emergency Response – Communication and sharing of operational information among multiple public safety agencies

This CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) aims to define a cooperative framework and the required guidelines for stakeholders from multiple operational organizations to be able to exchange information on situational awareness and the status of the operations, as it is necessary in large-scale crises.

More specifically, the CWA seeks to strengthen the structured and consistent flow of information between the agencies involved in emergency response and in substance, attempts to agree on the information that needs to be exchanged between the emergency response stakeholders. Therefore, the outcome will focus on achieving consensus on the formalities for messaging of information typically shared during emergencies and crises and processed by the components of the Command & Control (C&C) platforms.

The planned CEN Workshop Agreement is intended to be used by the security industry that focus on developing C&C systems and the integrators of related technological solutions for decision support. The planned CWA is not primarily planned to be used directly by the first responders and commanders of the public safety agencies. However, they will be benefit from the standardization developments and the outcome of the proposed CWA.


The kick-off meeting will be held on Friday, 18 February 2022, from 09.30-11.30 as a web meeting.
