For the 2004 edition, the committee updated terminology and editorially reformatted the
document to follow the 2003 Manual of Style for NFPA Technical Committee Documents; however, the
basic features of the standard remained unchanged. In addition, the committee added a table in
Annex A that created a crosswalk among FEMA CAR, NFPA 1600, and BCI & DRII professional
practices. The committee added significant informational resources to Annexes B, C, D, and E.
The document continues to be developed in cooperation and coordination with represen-
tatives from FEMA, NEMA, and IAEM.
