This paper proposes the use of responsibility modelling as a tool to support the process of contingency planning for civil emergencies. Existing contingency planning techniques produce documents which are difficult to analyse for vulnerabilities, particularly across organisational boundaries and are likely to be largely unused during an actual emergency. This paper presents a new approach to contingency planning based on the notion of responsibility modelling combined with HAZOPS analysis of information requirements. Whilst the work described in this paper represents research in progress, the example models presented do illustrate the potential use of responsibility modelling concepts to assist in the contingency planning process.
