Disaster Hero

Developed by the American College Of Emergency Physicians and funded by U.S. Department of Homeland Security/FEMA, Disaster Hero <http://bit.ly/15t4qCl> is a free online game designed to teach children (grades 1 through 8), parents, and teachers/caregivers how to prepare for disasters. “In the game, the player takes the role of a “Disaster Hero” contestant in a high-tech game show, competing against a computer opponent to prove his or her disaster knowledge and preparedness skills for a chance to be named the next “Disaster Hero!”

Disaster Hero covers four main topic areas: (1) basic preparedness steps – including get a kit, make a plan, and be informed –  (2) common disasters (earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, and tornadoes), associated  danger signals, typical effects, common injuries, and appropriate responses, (3) basic quick-care tips and techniques for specific common injuries, and (4) basic information about geographic-specific disasters
