When Disaster Strikes

|For those of you who don't know, the Midwest United Stated has experienced a lot of rain and flooding the last few days. I live in Southeast Missouri and thankfully, I myself did not get hit hard but many did. Some of my family members are out of their homes though and it is very hard to imagine what they must be going through. 70 counties in Missouri are declared a federal disaster area and our local churches and police stations are setting up shelters for those who have had to evacuate. Here is a picture of my area in Missouri. You can see the water breeching the levee and flooding the road. That is just a little glimpse of what is happening here.|
In times like these we look to other people for help. These rescue organizations go out of their way to help others in times of disaster. I myself have overlooked their importance until now. This quiz is all about the history and function of rescue and emergency service organizations.
Have fun and enjoy. Please rate when you are finished.
