You have to admire the Japanese ........

They made an emergency crisis both a recovery effort and real time training event. Utilizing both demographic

that typically have a useless sense of contribution and made them a key element to the recovery......


The team was made up of engineers nearing retirement and relative beginners. But they came together to tackle a host of problems.

Just a note, this was about a fuel movement back in 2011.  It was not a recent event.  Looks like an interesting video though.
