This report examines the emergency preparedness systems of Norway, Russia, Iceland, and Greenland in the fields of search and rescue (SAR), oil spill response (OSR), firefighting and violent action at sea. Within each country and each field, the report introduces the main maritime emergency preparedness and response institutions with their organizational models, responsibilities and main operational patterns. We compare the different institutions and agencies within SAR, oil spill response, firefighting, and violent action at sea across the countries and examine variations in organizational structures, roles, responsibilities, command structures, and operational patterns. By exploring the key challenges for each sector and nation, the report also aims to address how multi-sectoral and multi-national cooperation may increase the response capabilities in severe crises and in sea areas were resources are scarce.
