Well, when I was first thinking about this, I was thinking about a disaster without any villains involved, so you'd be rolling against the Doom Pool. I guess your effect die wouldn't really apply, since you just want the narrative outcome of "getting that civilian out of there".
However, if there was a villain on the scene, I'd probably let them try to react to the hero trying to save the civilians, which would pump the die pool up a bit and make the rescue attempt more dangerous.
