Norwegian rescue services are carried out through cooperation between government agencies, voluntary organisations and private companies who have resources appropriate for rescue services.

The Joint Rescue Coordination Centres have the overall operational responsibility during search and rescue operations. The operations are coordinated either directly from one of two Joint Rescue Coordination Centres (JRCC) which are situated in Bodø and in Sola near Stavanger, or through one of 28 rescue sub centres.

The border between the counties Nord-Trøndelag and Nordland, at 65 degrees north, also marks the border between the JRCC Northern Norway and the JRCC Southern Norway.

Notification of an accident is given to the JRRC or to the nearest police authority on the emergency telephone number 112. Notification of a missing person is given to the police.
