Consider this a dress rehearsal for disaster. The best way to prepare for catastrophe is to head to the place where they engineer it. Disaster City, located in College Station, Texas, is the world's largest search-and-rescue training facility - home to 52 acres of engineered chaos. The mock community features full-scale collapsible structures designed to simulate various levels of disaster and wreckage. The nation's elite first responders train here - so the next time disaster strikes, they'll be ready.
Disaster City is one of several organizations spotlighted on NRA Life of Duty, a network that serves and supports those who go to work each day to protect, defend and fight for the safety of the American people.
