    Emergency response is one of the most demanding phases in disaster management.The fire brigade, paramedics, police and municipality are the organisations involved in the first response to the incident. They coordinate their work based on welldefined policies and procedures, but they also need the most complete and up-todate information about the incident, which would allow a reliable decision-making. There is a variety of systems answering the needs of different emergency responders, but they have many drawbacks: the systems are developed for a specific sector; it is difficult to exchange information between systems; the systems offer too much or little information, etc. Several systems have been developed to share information during emergencies but usually they maintain the nformation that is coming from field operations in an unstructured way. This report presents a data model for organisation of dynamic data (operational and situational data) for emergency response. The model is developed within the RGI- 239 project ‘Geographical Data Infrastructure for Disaster Management’ (GDI4DM)
