The task of the regional Interservice Coordination Centre is to gather and share information, and to assure good communication and coordination between the actors.

In addition, the Interservice Coordination Centre shall map and meet requirements for resources, and gather and recommend common guidelines for the actors involved.

24/7 presence

The core of the regional Interservice Coordination Centre is the around-the-clock presence of the Municipality of Bergen’s coordination duty team. The main task of the coordination duty team is to observe available systems and analyse signals for the earliest detection of undesired developing events, and thereafter implement rapid corrective and damage-limiting measures.

Substantial Coordination

Events with a high level of severity, scope and longer duration necessitate substantial coordination between the actors involved. These might be planned events (large sporting events, etc), forewarned events (extreme weather, such as flooding, winds, etc.) or complex acute events affecting a large portion of the population. In such cases, the coordination duty team may be extended to include other actors with a central role in civil protection and emergency preparedness in the region. The objective of co-localisation in a coordination centre is to achieve a better understanding of the situation through more effective communication, information sharing, and therefore manageability. In an emergency situation, the Interservice Coordination Centre will be an advisory body for decision-making authorities, for example, the Municipality’s crisis management team and the police.
