Disaster Preparedness Games from Koshland Science Museum

Make preparedness fun for the entire family with interactive games from the Koshland Science Museum. As you explore the activities, be sure to try your hand at the Resilience Jigsaw Puzzle to learn what it takes for communities to be  resilient. According to experts at the Koshland Science Museum, there are several criteria for building a resilient community, including:
  • Infrastructure and facilities that withstand disasters;
  • Transportation that is operational within a week;
  • Measures that reduce the impact of disasters;
  • Plans that help businesses reopen quickly;
  • Community plans and agreements that leverage expertise and partnerships; and
  • Groups that support the community.
In addition to these interactive games, you can also find resources on the new America's PrepareAthon! website to prepare your family and organization for disasters.
