Players will embark on an adventure that raises interesting and surprising questions about disasters and resilience.

Just like in a real disaster, players will not know what’s coming next, and there won’t always be an easy answer. Players will make the best decisions they can as representatives of various sectors as well as members of neighborhoods through preparedness, response, and recovery phases. Afterwards, we’ll debrief on what happened during the game and discuss resilience efforts within Chester County.
