Preparing for disasters can be a grueling, although necessary, exercise for those involved in emergency response. The large scale nature of disaster response poses many obstacles to executing an effective disaster preparedness drill that incorporates hospitals,fire and rescue personnel, and police. Cooperation and effective communication during these incidents is imperative. Simulation technology is a realistic alternative to a large, multi-disciplinary, one- time effort. Each discipline may be able to practice and reinforce their roles in a disaster 1vith the aid of various emerging technologies. This paper e):.:amines some of the technologies already being implemented in the area of disaster preparedness. Technology based learning (TBL) strategies are analyzed/or consistency with accepted principles of adult education.
