A new Covid-19 Pandemic level has been added to New Zealand Civil Defence game What’s the Plan Stan?, a free resource to support schools, teachers and students to develop the knowledge and skills to prepare for emergency events.
Developed by Auckland Emergency Management (AEM), MCDEM, NEMA and EQC in partnership with Geo AR Games, the goal of the game is to educate children between the ages of 6 to 12 years about how to be prepared in an emergency situation. It teaches kids what needs to go into an emergency kit, what hazards could harm or even kill during an emergency situation and what are the main messages for each event – including earthquake, tsunami and now a health pandemic.
The game is browser-based and can be played on a Chromebook, laptop or PC (with a keyboard), and takes about 30-45 min to complete. At the bottom of the game’s landing page, there are Q&A sessions to test what students have learned.
The game can be played in several languages other than English, including Te Reo Māori, Spanish, German, Russian, Dutch, and Portuguese.
