I need help with a Science question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
The Spanish in 2005 created the Military Emergency Unit or the Unidad Militar de Emergencias (UME); it is comprised of all of their military branches. Their assistance in critical emergency and catastrophe situations involves the use of military capabilities and personnel for maximum coordination and effectiveness in supporting civil emergency plans and Civil Protection in catastrophic situations in national or foreign territory. This also includes fighting fires, aiding in natural or ecological/environmental disasters (either natural or provoked), and situations of dire need. Support will be primarily focused on sanitation, supply distribution, the establishment of infrastructures, surveillance of areas susceptible to environmental aggressions or ecological harm, and possible clean-up and recovery. The military capabilities may also be used to support Civil Protection and Autonomous Community authorities in the event of NBCR threats to the population. The Government opted for the establishment of a unit of rapid intervention, full availability, military presence throughout the national territory, and who respond in an agile and effective way to the needs of Spanish society. Thus, the unit received the mission to act in those emergencies that have their origin in natural hazards: floods, earthquakes, heavy snowfall, forest fires as well as those derived from technological risks.
