This chapter provides an overview of the use of risk analysis as an input into emergency response planning, as part of the area-based emergency response planning for established areas in the Norwegian sector. Most attention is devoted to the determination of the required rescue capacity of personnel in the sea, in liferafts and injured personnel in lifeboats. In addition, the requirements for external firefighting capacity, the rescue of personnel after helicopter accidents and assistance to seriously injured and sick persons are briefly discussed. The benefits of area-based emergency response arrangements are also outlined.
