You never know when disaster will strike. Use this site to check your readiness by making a disaster plan, building a kit to have available at a moment’s notice, and becoming aware of the many kinds of disasters. Not all will affect where you live, but they are all interesting to learn about. After you’ve done all this preparation, play some games to pit your knowledge against whatever the game can throw at you. The Disaster Master game puts you into the middle of different disasters and you need to know how to take correct action. The Build a Kit game lets you build a checklist of what you and your family might need to have in a disaster kit.
