Aiming at the problem for the characteristics of emergency decision making conflict and the difficult forming the decision scheme with high consistency, firstly the causes of conflict generating of emergency group decision making are analyzed by combing emergency decision problem with decision environment. The coordination framework for conflict eliminating of emergency decision making is constructed. The group conflict measure method for emergency decision making is proposed. On the basis of that, the conflict eliminating model and method for emergency decision making are proposed to form the conflict eliminating coordination mechanism for emergency decision making of unconventional outburst incidents, so that the conflicts of emergency group decision making gradually constringe to obtain the emergency decision scheme with enough low conflict degree. Finally, a calculating example validates the realizing process and validity of conflict coordination method & mechanism for emergency decision making.
