Kidzania Manila recently opened its newest attraction - Disaster Preparedness Training Center and my son Wes was one of the first four kids to experience it.  Duck, cover and hold!  These are the things that my 7 year old remembers every time he hears the word Disaster or Emergency.

But during the opening of the newest attraction of Kidzania Manila, the kids were taught more than that.  Children get to experience responding to disasters while learning basic survival skills.  They were taught different types of natural dangers and the threats these pose to citizens in a community.  The Disaster Preparedness Training Center is an all-in simulation facility to learn and have fun at the same time that's great for kids and even kids-at-heart!

The latest establishment adds another thrilling role play activity at KidZania Manila, which is celebrating its third year in the country. It teaches young disaster response trainees, aged seven to 17 years old, how to plan, prepare for, survive and recover from natural disasters.

Aside from the training, the young trainees also undergo a lifelike disaster scenario which will challenge them to:

  • ·         Assess the emergency situation and secure the area.
  • ·         Find survivors and help carry them to safety.
  • ·         Locate exits and escape safely.

Inside the new Disaster Preparedness Training Center.
The new KidZania Manila establishment aims to promote disaster preparedness and resiliency among children, while seeking to develop their collaboration, communication, and critical thinking, when disaster strikes.
After my son experienced his Disaster Preparedness Training, I asked how was it, he said
"It was awesome Mom!  It's like real life disaster!  I only knew - Duck, Cover, and Hold because it was also taught in school.  But this time, I learned more!  We should prepare our GO Bag now when we get home!  I should bring a whistle with me all the time, is that okay mommy?  Also, we saved somebody during the disaster and carried the body outside.  It was freaky especially when the elevator broke and the emergency started, but at least I know what to do now!"  
Here's how it looks inside, it looks so real!  That's why kids would really love to try this simulation.  As a parent, this is a good educational attraction because they come out with new learning and bing home confidence because they know better when they leave the Disaster Preparedness Training Center door.
Got to wear the hard hat while the kids were inside during the simulation.
What we should pack in our GO BAGS: First-aid kids, water, a big Go Bag
GO-Bag content: flash light, extra cellphone, charger, can opener, battery operated radio, canned goods, other food.
Canned goods, biscuits, and more foods. We don't want to get hungry when disaster strikes.
