(2) Paragraph (3) applies if more than one Category 1 responder which has functions which are exercisable in a particular local resilience area is subject to the same relevant civil protection duty.
(3) If this paragraph applies, a general Category 1 responder which is subject to the relevant civil protection duty may co-operate with another Category 1 responder which has functions which are exercisable in that particular local resilience area and which is subject to the same relevant civil protection duty for the purpose of identifying which of them will be the Category 1 responder with lead responsibility for performing that duty in relation in that local resilience area.
(4) If, pursuant to paragraph (3) or an analogous provision in regulations made by the Scottish Ministers under Part 1, one of the Category 1 responders is identified as being the Category 1 responder with lead responsibility for performing a relevant civil protection duty in a particular local resilience area, the other Category 1 responders in that local resilience area which are subject to that duty are referred to in these Regulations as “non-lead Category 1 responders”.
