"What Would You Do" Scenarios

A key element to successfully responding to and recovering from a major disaster is the overall preparedness of individual citizens, families and the community. With that in mind, we invite you to participate in a series of ‘What would you do?’ scenarios to assess your level of preparedness. These tabletop activities are intended to be low-stress conversation starters for the whole community. Each scenario includes discussion questions for the activity, a facilitator guide and some helpful links to enhance individual and community preparedness.

Enhance Preparedness Knowledge with “Ready Games”

The FEMA Region 2 National Preparedness Division created a series called “Ready Games,” a  group of family-friendly games where participants tested their knowledge of emergency management. Challenge yourself and your communities and start playing these games to learn more about preparedness.

Youth Preparedness Council

FEMA’s National Youth Preparedness Council (YPC) was created in 2012 to bring together youth leaders interested in supporting disaster preparedness and making a difference in their communities with national and local preparedness projects. Since 2012 many states, counties and municipalities have adopted this model to form their own YPCs.  

The Region II YPC supports FEMA’s ongoing commitment to involve the youth of America in preparedness-related activities and resilience. Students from New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and our Tribal Nations come together to implement preparedness projects in an effort to make their communities better prepared and more resilient.

If you have any questions, please send us an email.
