MALAYSIA – SCHOOL PREPAREDNESS PROGRAMME

Project MALAYSIA - SCHOOL PREPAREDNESS PROGRAMME
Objectives

The workshops aim to increase the participants’ understanding of the importance of disaster preparedness and to provide practical experiences in preparing risk and hazard maps in school through various exercises.

Project Partners Pintar Foundation
Activities

The workshop activities include a game called Grab Bag (emergency bag) game. The students have to decide what items to be included in their personal Grab Bag and family evacuation kit by way of a simple card game. During the exercise, students learn to identify existing risks to hazards as well as capacities within their own school. The students will later put in their findings on a school map and develop an action plan on how to solve the problems identified.
