The American College of Emergency Physicians announced the launch of a browser-based game meant to gauge the knowledge of families, children, and teachers on disaster preparation. The game, Disaster Hero, was developed by American College of Emergency Physicians using grant money from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The game puts players on a game show called Disaster Hero, where they compete against an A.I. opponent to see just how much knowledge the player has about preparing for natural disasters or other emergencies. The game is designed to instruct children, parents, caregivers and teachers on the best ways to prepare for serious emergency situations.
Disaster Hero works in all browsers running Adobe Flash and is free-to-play. You can find it now at www.disasterhero.com.
