Using civil-military cooperation

Context:
Civil-military cooperation pools together resources to improve carrying out functions for reasons such as emergency measures. Such cooperation may be used for beneficial or unethical purposes, and may encounter controversy.
Implementation:
In 1995, a devastating earthquake in Kobe, Japan, overwhelmed civilian emergency services but there was slowness in calling in military troops and equipment needed for rescue relief and rehabilitation work because civil-military cooperation is a highly sensitive issue in Japan.
