Children taking part in this activity work as volunteers in case of a catastrophic event. For starters, they find out what earthquakes are, how they occur and they study the risk areas on the map. The young ones start learning how to shelter in case of an earthquake and what a backpack for emergency purposes contains, since such backpack should be ready at all times in every home. During such simulation, children get inside a building that’s been affected by the earthquake. Inside this damaged building, visitors have the opportunity to see what is the safest place in any such event, what they must do in order to save others, but also how we can safeguard our buildings helping them not to deteriorate.
