Roberto De Vido (who keeps me apprised of Japanese public preparedness efforts from his home on the outskirts of Tokyo) just brought something to my attention here in the U.S. — Â the Quake Quiz (www.quakequizsf.org)Â created by theÂ San Francisco’s Office of Emergency Management and found on its public preparedness site,Â www.72hours.org.
Quake Quiz is an engaging and informative interactive test that asks users what they would do if an earthquake occurred when they were at home, the office, in the car, the beach, commuting or dining out. The Quiz also offers preparedness tips (some of which will be helpful no matter what the disaster). Particularly striking is that the screen shakes like an earthquake before every question. I will admit to a missing a few answers, but I definitely learned some things. I recommend checking it out both as resource and as a creative way of delivering preparedness information.
