On May 13th, we will be organizing a Wildfire Preparedness Game in Volcano, CA. The goal of the event is to share preparedness resources and build community resilience in a way that is engaging and fun for all ages. In 2010, we organized an Earthquake Preparedness Game in San Francisco, and have since developed the concept of Disaster Preparedness Gaming. With the unprecedented drought conditions and alarming wildfires last summer, we are determined to apply our play tools towards resilience and preparedness.
The game will take place in Volcano on Saturday May 13th from 1pm – 36pm, and it is free / open to the public.
Activities will include:
- Evacuation route map-making
- Go Bag assembly relays
- Family Feud-style fire safety quizzes
- Creative preparedness videos It takes a village to prepare for a fire, and I am actively looking for advice and support.
Please don't hesitate to reach out directly with tips, resources, suggestions and questions. Also, if there are any individuals who would like to volunteer to make the event run smoothly, please be in contact! The more the merrier.
