Event description

Description

The purpose of this simulation is to enable participants to simulate roles and gain sheltering experience using the content presented in the Shelter Fundamentals course.

The American Red Cross Shelter Operations Simulation establishes an environment for participants to practice the knowledge they learned after completing the Shelter Fundamentals course.

It is a “hands on” skills-based simulation. Participants work in teams that rotate through three skills stations based on the four phases of the Sheltering Process presented in the course: resourcing, opening, operating
and closing a shelter.

The Shelter Operations Simulation focuses on the various shelter operation tasks required to maintain a functioning shelter. Three overarching goals have been outlined for the simulation in order to provide
the participants with a successful and productive learning experience:

  • Promote teamwork through interactive group activities that correspond to resourcing, opening, operating and closing a shelter.
  • Reinforce the key activities and tasks that are involved in resourcing, opening, operating and closing a shelter as presented in the Shelter Fundamentals and Shelter Management courses.
  • Provide participants with an opportunity to practice their skills at setting up, operating and closing a shelter at the following skills stations: Reception, Dormitory Registration and Information; Dormitory; Feeding and Supplies.
