catastrophe prone areas
The sector of Urban Search and Rescue is a national and international network of Actors conducting missions to rescue victims buried under rubble. These emergencies are either caused by natural disasters or man-made disasters, like explosions or terrorist attacks. Shortly every catastrophe, guided by the UN ( INSARAG), coordinated by LEMAS, (local emergency management authorities), and conducted by professional urban search and rescue teams, they locate people under the rubble, extract them, treat them and clean up the debris. They are supported by local actors not especially trained in urban search and rescue, but educated to be assistants. This can be the police or firefighters. The civilians also help though they are not properly integrated with the rescue efforts. Currently, they run on the pile of rubble hoping to rescue their loved ones, without having the knowledge or tools to do so.
