For those of you new to the list and unaware of the EIIF (W3C
Emergency Information Interoperability Framework) group, you can find

http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/eiif/wiki/Main_Page

As mentioned by Nuwan, it would be good for us to gradually import
some of the well know standards identified by this group into Sahana.
