Canada's role of helping other countries during disasters is to send people (organizations), medical kits, food, water, shelter and donating money.
The Organizations Roles
Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SKIRT):
Team of organizations and companies that rebuild roads, fresh water, waste water and storm water networks.
a good global partner because Canada helps other countries as much as possible. They have the DART going in and helping, they are sending medical kits/equipments. But there are also many other organizations which we said in the other slide that are also doing there best. Canada is also raising many charities and funds to help out. We think that Canada is doing a lot to help with earthquakes and that it is a global partner!

1. Engineers say it's not the earthquake that kills it is the damage it causes.
2. Some scientists believe that animals give clues to earthquakes.
3. Scientist cannot completely predict earthquakes.
4. Sometimes, even when scientist are almost 100% sure that they will come, they don't.

Earthquakes + Volcanoes
These are only some of the organizations roles, but there are more organizations and more roles.
