Main DescriptionCatastrophe Preparation and Prevention for Fire Service Professionals is a multi-media product for Homeland Security designed for fire service personnel. It features a full color, 160 page, spiral-bound worktext that contains a link to an online simulation game called “San Luis Rey” and a CD-ROM containing selected government documents and excerpts from McGraw-Hill texts. Instructors can use the wealth of material in the CD-ROM to adjust the length of the course. It can be taught in a single day or two-day course or expanded into a full semester. The worktext guides the student through the material and links the learning experience from the different formats.
During the course, learners participate in an online simulation game where they will have to detect and prevent a terrorist attack. Failure has dire consequences for them and the fictional jurisdiction of San Luis Rey. The game challenges learners to move beyond response-oriented training and think about what it takes to prevent a terrorist attack.
