Is there any organisation like this in Europe?

I am not aware of any pan-European efforts, but from a German
perspective what probably comes closest is the "Technische Hilfswerk"
(Agency for Technical Relief), plus maybe the "Bundesamt für
Bevölkerungsschutz und Katastrophenhilfe"?

There are other national initiatives/organizations listed at .

Yes, there are quite huge cultural and societal differences in how you
would imagine something like this to be organized.
