Crisis preparedness

The County Administrative Board's role during crisis preparedness is to coordinate the county's work – before, during and after a societal disruption.

During a societal distruption, the County Administrative Board must cooperate, coordinate and support the county's actors. The purpose is to focus society's measures and resources so that society suffers as small consequences as possible.

We must work to:

  • ensure that there necessary cooperation inside the county and neighbouring counties is ongoing,
  • coordinate activities between municipalities, regions and authorities during a crisis,
  • coordinate information to the public and media,
  • target and prioritize state and international reinforcement resources as decided by the government.

The County Administrative Board also works with preventive measures to prevent social disruptions from happening, limiting the damages caused by social disruptions, and be able to be able to bring back experiences after a social disturbance.
