If the ODPM is unable to deal with a hazard on a national level, will the regional or international emergency organizations step in to provide assistance?

Yes. The first agency to do so will be CDEMA. CDEMA’s main function is to make an immediate and coordinated response to any disastrous event affecting any participating state, once the state requests such assistance. The ODPM has also been provided with assistance from the US Army South in the area of training and enhancements of disaster risk reduction capabilities. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), an agency of the US government tasked with Disaster Mitigation, Preparedness, Response and Recovery planning, has also facilitated the ODPM with the enhancement of disaster risk reduction capabilities.
