Executive Summary

Emergency Response Officials (EROs) require a means of identifying themselves and their abilities (skill sets and attributes) for daily access to work locations and sites during routine and emergency situations or special events. This need extends to all emergency response communities1 and applies both in their local areas and across the nation, as EROs are asked to provide support during national disasters and other emergency situations that may not be in their local jurisdictions. There are strong drivers to move from a flash-pass and paper-laden environment to one that uses a machine-readable credential with a fast, secure electronic validation process that works in all environmental conditions, even when neither power nor communication capabilities are available.
