The Public Security Technical Program PSTP Emergency Management EM Operations Process Mapping study was designed to build a generic, all-hazard representation of the emergency management operations that provide the foundation of the Canadian government response capability. The project leveraged specific works to design the approach that was used to conduct the study. These works include capability based analysis, the four-pillared emergency management capability areas prepare, prevent, respond, recover, the US Department of Homeland Security DHS Target Capability List TCL, the Canadian Federal Emergency Response Plan FERP, the US Department of Defense Architecture Framework DoDAF and the Joint Command Decision Support for the 21st Century JCDS21 and Canadian Forces Experimental Centre CFEC Command and Sense CS Team architecture products. The merging of concepts from these sources formed the methodology used capture integrated emergency management operation processes across all stakeholders. This project has produced a series of architecture products that characterise high level generic emergency management response processes situated in an all-hazards environment. As outputs of this study, these products provide a baseline for further research in the area of emergency management. Using the products as templates, investigation with stakeholders will enable the capture of specific processes for a geographical region, an organisation andor a hazard with a comprehensive and standard framework. The outputs from this study will be used to support future PSTP activities required for program definition, and to facilitate engagement with emergency management EM sector authorities from all levels.
