The Civil Contingencies Act (CCA 2004) divides responding organisations into Categories and places a number of statutory duties on them:
- Category 1 Responders are those organisations with a statutory duty to plan for emergencies.
- Category 2 Responders are those organisations with a statutory duty to work with other responders and share information.
As well as category 1 and 2 responders, there are a number of non-categorised agencies that support us during planning, response and recovery. You can find a full list of our partners below.
