APCO Automatic Crash Notification Standard Receives ANSI Final Approval
Friday, May 20, 2022 | Comments

The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International received final approval from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) on May 20, for a newly created American National Standard (ANS).

APCO/NENA ANS 2.102.1-2022 Advanced Automatic Crash Notification (AACN) Vehicle Emergency Data Set (VEDS) was developed by a working group consisting of a diverse group of representatives from organizations and agencies of various sizes, locations and responsibilities. The standard provides a common data set used to deliver AACN data to emergency communication centers (ECCs) and responders, identifies crash and medical data elements, and uses a common data exchange format, allowing for multiple methods of data transfer and handling.

“AACN data set determines useful and critical data elements needed to provide an efficient emergency response to vehicle emergency incidents,” said APCO President Jason Kern. “This standard provides major benefits to the dispatch of first responders and to the patient care chain of survival.”
