What if a major disaster were to happen in your home town?
Do you know what to do in the event of a disaster?
We understand that disasters are not to be taken lightly and can have devestating effects on an entire community and beyond. The Whole Community Disaster Simulation is a, hands-on, role-playing activity that addresses these and many more questions....Through guided roleplaying with a fun twist and facilitation, participants dive into the challenges facing individuals, communities and emergency managers after a major disaster. Being so close to Halloween, this year's simulation theme is based on a Zombie Apocalypse!!
This simulation is a FREE event hosted by Larimer VOAD, United Way, Volunteers of America, American Red Cross and other local agencies. This unique award winning program, designed by Ready Montana through a grant from FEMA is a must attend!!
During this 3.5 - 4 hour session, participants receive a role to play - whether it be as a first responder, a nonprofit director, a city-council person, a media representative or survivor. We expect to have representatives from a number of local agencies including government officials, media and emergency managers for the event. All participants work together to engage and solve challenges with the greatest efficiency. The time will consist of 30 minutes of briefing and receiving roles, 2 hours of active simulation, and 1 hour of debrief, review, and planning for future disasters.
This free event is open to the public and we encourage you to share this invite with your family, neighbors, co-workers and agency partners!
So mark your calendars today and make sure you don't miss this fun, interactive exercise!
