Disaster Hero Game

Check out this cool, new, web-based game at www.disasterhero.com .
The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) has announced the release of Disaster Hero, a game designed to teach families how to prepare for all types of hazards or emergencies. The game was developed as part of a grant administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency.
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!”
It’s a unique and entertaining approach to teaching everyone to have an active role in home disaster planning. The game is geared to multiple audiences, including children, teens, parents, caregivers, and teachers to focus on what to do before, during, and after a disaster. It and the associated web site emphasize having an emergency plan, getting an emergency kit, and being informed. Players are encouraged to learn about the types of disasters that can occur in their geographic region or state.
The dashing Dante Shields is the original Disaster Hero, founder of the Disaster Arena that recruits the best prospects to lead the next generation of the Disaster Hero Squad. Points, trophies, and achievements are earned throughout the experience and displayed on the Disaster Hero web site, along with additional downloadable learning activities targeted to teachers and parents.
