The Civil Defense Units are one the only emergency services left in Aleppo that are somewhat capable of offering help in the wake of bomb attacks and other war related incidents.

Interview:
"The number of people in Hanano center are 29 members and there are five centers in Aleppo. We work as shifts, we are divided into groups and we take shifts so there are people working 24/7. Barrel bombs are being dropped, approximately 20-30 barrel bomb are being dropped everyday on Aleppo, and missiles, and for the last month-and-a-half they are dropping barrel bombs at night also. We formed the civil defense team that does the mission of searching and rescuing people, if a building falls apart and there are people alive buried underneath it, our job is to remove the rubble so we can save lives."
