Cyprus is located in the second largest earthquake zone of the planet, which is experiencing earthquakes, which account for around 15% of global seismic activity. Almost all the cities and many settlements in Cyprus have been destroyed in the distant past by strong earthquakes. In such an earthquake, government agencies alone may not be enough to cover all episodes. The assistance of trained volunteer rescuers will achieve a faster rescue of surface wounded and will ensure timely identification and rescue of trapped ruined people.
