This is a game-style simulation that gives the public a realistic look at what they would be facing post disaster and all the partners they would be working with in order to recover. This Simulation is a hands on experiential based learning tool that teaches the importance of personal and family preparedness. This is a fun and engaging tool for your community. Little to no knowledge about disaster preparedness, response or recovery is needed for this simulation to happen which makes it the perfect tool for the general public.
The Whole Community Disaster Simulation is a role-playing experience which give participants the opportunity to experience the aftermath of a disaster from multiple points of view. During this simulation participants must try to reach group specific goals and objectives. While working on the objectives, action cards will be injected into the role playing, changing situations for different people. This Simulation gives you a small taste of the roles that community members may fill following a major disaster. You will find that the whole community is involved and affected in some manner. It is important that everyone is prepared and knows what to do in the event of a disaster because all disasters start and end locally.
