What certified facilitators are saying  

If you think this game can help your community education and preparedness activities, it's definitely worth taking the time. Especially if you don't have a lot of experience facilitating!
If you are focused on resilience outcomes and instilling confidence at the community level, this is a spectacular program!
I'm planning to tell my colleagues in my program to recommend this to them. It's good for both learning the Extreme Event game and becoming a great facilitator. I learned both!
