InterAgency Board (IAB) 2007 Annual Report and the 2008 Standardized Equipment List (SEL) [open pdf - 7MB]
"Found in this annual report are our prioritized lists of gaps in technology, standards, and interoperable and compatible areas of equipment our membership identified as important in preventing, planning, and training for and preparing to respond to all-hazard events with a special emphasis on WMD [Weapons of Mass Destruction] equipment issues. These lists represent a true multidisciplinary view of critical issues in equipment today. Our five SubGroups--Interoperable Communications and Information Systems (ICIS), Decontamination and Detection (D&D), Medical, Training, and Personal Protective and Operational Equipment (PP&OE), consisting of members from multiple disciplines--identify and prioritize gaps in technology, standards, and interoperability. Our committees--Science and Technology, Standards Coordination, and Compatibility and Interoperability--refine these gaps further and present them to the entire membership for a vote to develop a final, prioritized list of gaps in equipment-related issues for first responders. The final step is to make them accessible to our federal partners to use in shaping their budget and program plans."
