Contractual cooperation as mentioned in the first subsection, means, for example, entering into agreements relating to common emergency preparedness plans or agreements to use the emergency preparedness resources of others to ensure optimal emergency response in major acute incidents within an area or region. The availability of public resources in acute pollution situations will depend on no other prioritised activities being underway. Necessary evaluations of sensitivity and uncertainty with respect to availability of such resources shall be performed.
