In relation to this international document, Prof. Duncan Shaw (University of Manchester, United Kingdom), project leader responsible for ISO 22319 and coordinator of the Working Group 5-Resilience of the Community, of the Technical Committee ISO / TC 292- Safety and resilience, explained that: "While this new standard is based on extensive research and experience from flood emergencies in the United Kingdom, it also reflects the experience of emergency situations in other parts of the world, including ice storms in Canada, grassland fires in Australia, tsunamis in Japan and hurricanes in the United States of America, to name a few. This standard recognizes the complexity and value of spontaneous volunteers in emergencies and provides a practical guide to help organizations plan their effective involvement. ”
