Children get to experience responding to disasters while learning basic survival skills at KidZania Manila’s newest attraction—the Disaster Preparedness Training Center—an all-in simulation facility where they will discover different types of natural dangers and the threats these pose to citizens in a community.
The latest establishment adds another thrilling role play activity at KidZania Manila, which is celebrating its third year in the country this month. 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.
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.
Opened in August 2015, KidZania Manila is the 20th metropolis in the KidZania Nation around the globe. The educational family entertainment facility is a replica of a real city scaled down to kids’ size—with its own history, culture, language, and currency. It welcomed its millionth visitor in March this year and continues to provide children with over 100 engaging role play activities that teach valuable skills in a safe environment.
