The simulation uses virtual and live action role playing to simulate post-disaster supply chain for life’s necessities of water, food and medicine. Attendees use smart-phones or tablets to play the role of a business, government, or non-profit organizations working in a crisis scenario. Each role has a different objective, requiring players to coordinate and collaborate with their sector, demographic, and geographic partners to keep supply lines open.
