Maybe post it under 'Living in Andalucia' - I think these latter topics are probably too far down the screen to be seen.
You can spend, minutes, hours, days, weeks or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, would've happened - or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the f**k on.

See http://www.proteccioncivil.org/ for details of what they do ( basically what it says on the tin i.e protecting the public)

They are a voluntary organisation that are designed to supplement the paid professionals in the Police, Forestry Rangers, Mountain rescue, etc etc.

At home we have the Civil Defence and I believe its the same sort of organisation.

If by "home" you mean the UK, then you are behind the times as the UK Civil Defence Corps was disbanded way back in the 1960s.

The Civil Defence Association exists in UK - it is voluntary. My sister does some work for them.
They seem to deal with issues regarding disaster situations, scenarios such as - what would happen in the event of a major war- that sort of thing, I think.

It was the Civil Protection that help ferry people of our urbanization when it got flooded and made arrangements for somewhere to wait it out, for those unfortunates.
