Subject: Re: [emergency] Re: Question Regarding The EM TC

Hi Wayne,

There is no restriction for using EDXL Resource Messaging at any time. 
The MessageID, SentDateTime and MessageContentType elements are 
required. There is an optional IncidentInformation element which is 
typically used to associate an EDXL-RM message with an incident.

The reason for this, as I recall is that logistics are often arranged 
before and after a specific disaster, so it would have been onerous to 
require all RM messages to cite an incident.
