Games Tackle Disaster Training

I thought this was interesting. http://www.wired.com/news/technology/0,1282,69580,00.html The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is funding a series of computer games to help prepare health workers and other first responders facing bioterror attacks, nuclear accidents and pandemics. A multiplayer prototype is being developed to train teams of health specialists to work together. They are also looking at natural disasters thanks to the results of Katrina. Maybe the next head of FEMA will have to pass a simulation before they get the job, at least they have some experience.
