First Responders! is a board game about a community hit by a hurricane, within the first 72 hours, when players can only rely on themselves and each other for support. With First Responders!, we do not only initiate a conversation around disaster preparedness, we also provide people the tools and necessary self-reflection to become their own first responders. The game gives the players a greater comprehension of possible scenarios of a disaster, and dilemmas emerging from these.
