Dealing with cultural differences and disabilities in disaster response

Evacuation Challenge Game - gameplay

Evacuation in the face of a disaster poses a challenge for all parties involved. Panic and confusion are no friends to neither the rescue team nor to the evacuees. But there are many more obstacles on the road to safety than people normally think of. The Evacuation Challenge Game is just the right tool to help you realize them.
