That's why we have freeways. While employed by the US army, one US president and his platoon was assigned the task of crossing from one side of the USA to the other. That journey took over 56 days given the state of vehicles and country roads at the time. In contrast, in the 1930's, Germany had Autobahns that allowed vehicles to travel across the country at over 70 mph. The equivalent journey in the USA to get from one side of the continent to another, would only take 48 hours.

There are also are various emergency services that can be transported in regular shipping containers. These include medical services, fire fighting and computer server rooms. Even office desks:

Chinook helicopters can be used to transport containers, though it is easier to transport them by road.

When you look at a small incident like a oil rig blowing up off-shore and see how long that takes to get under control as has happened in the USA and UK in the past .

Now imagine that on a colossal scale where the sea floor goes or a massive blow out of some kind or even Fukashima . the oceans would die very quickly and with fukashima we just do not hear about it any more but it still spews out hundreds of tonns of water per day 7 years later .

And nobody thought to freeze it on site and ship it to the Antarctic

I know about Piper Alpha as I was in Aberdeen at the time. A mother several houses up from us lost her husband. The problem back then was that there were emergency cut off valves that could have shut down the pumps on the mainland that were pushing oil through to the mainland. But these weren't activated because management feared they would be held responsible for loss of revenue. That decision making had to be delegated to automatic cutoff systems. Inspections are now done by the HSE rather than the Department of Energy.

The reactor cores of Fukushima was so highly radioactive that no-one can go near them. Even electronic machines break down under the radiation.

I worked on the Tharos many moons ago doing a re-fit , imho they should tunnel under Fukushima and set off a H- bomb and vaporise the thing then pour as much concrete as possible

interesting this video about life in the army , all happy campers ,

Youre dreaming..

I am a 1st Responder....EMT/Advanced Disaster Life Support/FEMA/Dept.of Homeland Security...go bag in car 24/7-365 days a year for the last 10 years.

The world is not an animated Thunderbirds or X-Men movie.The whole world has different politics, religions, belief systems, ideologies...and the rest don't give a crap.

It's nice you have an idea...but the real world is not Netflix, sadly.

We may someday see it but never, ever, ever will it happen until the entire world comes together, race, creed, color, politics in acceptance of everyone of them as 1.

Maybe in 50-75 yrs...but doubtful. A lot of the world doesn't care..doesn't believe, won't accept any help from a multi-national Super X-Men and crews of rebuilders.

EMT/ERT
ADLS
FEMA/D.H.S
I.C.S.-Incident Command System

Existing fire brigades, military aid and ambulance services fight with each other.

Surely another emergency service would just confuse things further.

Perhaps all the rescue groups could dissociate themselves from any particular country and unite under a single chain of command?

That is what this thread is about dreaming because dreamers sometimes accomplish things somebody might read this thread and do something positive and not be a puppet ! .

It is about what people could achieve if given the chance without /politics/religion/and or race and al that other jazz the world has to throw at us on a weekly basis , what humans could do together if the military industrial complex was stood down from a war footing even for 3 years and with all the natural disasters happening over the years why this would be a good idea it would promote peace among the nations and take care of a problem like the report from Iron Mountain outlines of highly trained people Not stacking shelves at Walmart



Are you pensioned off at 55 like some first responders in the UK are , thrown to the wind thanks but no thanks attitude when all that years of service and experience are getting lost , when they could volunteer for a stint training and working for the greater good ( pay is by crowd funding ) everyone wins and instead of playing stupid war games against imaginary enemies the people tasked with manning this Organization go to real crisis ! around the world ,80-150.000 thousand soldiers , sailors, airmen, Engineers are given 1 year rotas , instead of National service it is called World service , i think you would be surprised at what people could achieve if given the chance and a little bit of competition as fun .

What we have now is not fit for purpose and should be re-worked as we need to think bigger and what if . the public would soon come on board , look how easy they raise hundreds of thousands for a tramp on the road with a sob story and a go fund me page

Positive mental thinking mysterioustranger

This would not be just another emergency service it would be a idea , and you know that ideas can grow like mighty Oaks from just a little seed like fire in the minds of men !

Americans have Star trek while us Brits have red-dwarf we are cheap gits at the end of the day everything is done on a shoe string budget and in a shed by someone called Norris. or Bert
we were so good at solving problems they once called us Great when our backs are to the wall .

Thunderbirds came out in the 60s the biggest rockets to date were built at the same time and men went to the moon
on them famous F1 engines ,Concord flew and the English electric lightning was at mach 2 and the U2 was hitting the air as was the blackbird and where are we 50 years later the grand scheme of things .


The best we have to offer is the ISS station 195 miles away from us no moon bases nada that we know about and only Elon Musk managing to land rockets on a barge makes me want to be young again ,

If you have a serious emergency like an earthquake, everything will be uncertain. Which roads are still usable? Which warehouses storing supplies are still functional? Which parts of the mobile phone networks, electricity, water and sewage lines are still functional? Who needs water pumped out? Who needs rescuing from rubble? Who needs food?
Buses are needed to evacuate people. Trucks and lorries are needed to deliver food, water and medical supplies.

All of this can't be repaired until we know what the damage is. That can only happen once roads are cleared, so that repair crews can restore power lines and mobile phone masts. Sometimes it is only when the roads are cleared and isolated villages are reached that this is known. Heavy lifting gear always seems to be the item most needed - mainly due to all the collapsed concrete buildings or fallen trees. Maybe mobile phone masts could be made more damage tolerant. Cold war bunkers had telescopic masts that would retract into an underground bunker and push their way back out after the nuclear strike.

Most governments and army bases do store long term emergency supplies like MRE's, water bottles, tents, clothes and other supplies.

Spread among all the aircraft carriers maybe 4 groups [ nuclear powered ] , one to each corner of the globe along with hospital ships and floating oil rig platforms , barges and fire fighting water scooping planes , think big < the puppets did and nothing was impossible

And a crew of 100-200.000 on the first year
