What if a major disaster were to happen in your hometown? 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 devastating effects on an entire community and beyond. The Community Disaster Simulation is a hands-on, role-playing activity that can help you prepare for an emergency. Through guided role-playing with a fun twist and facilitation, participants dive into the challenges facing individuals, communities and emergency managers after a major disaster. In the spirit of Halloween, this year's simulation theme is based on a Zombie Apocalypse!This simulation is a FREE event hosted by Larimer Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD), United Way of Larimer, Volunteers of America, American Red Cross and other local agencies.
As part of the event, 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. 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, two hours of active simulation, and one hour of debriefing, 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.
