The Scottish Government Resilience Room (SGoRR; prior to February 2008 called the Scottish Government Emergency Room or SEER, from the former name Scottish Executive Emergency Room) is a coordination facility of the Scottish Government that is activated in cases of national emergency or crisis, or during events abroad with major implications for the United Kingdom.

A meeting in SEER was held on the 1 July 2007 due to the terrorist attack on Glasgow Airport.

It is the Scottish equivalent of the Cabinet Office Briefing Rooms in Whitehall.
