Social Media and government games

Homeland security with George Washington university have created a first person EMS and disaster training game. As part of National Emergency Medical Service Preparadness Initive (NEMSPI or Cooperative Agreement Number 2005-GT-T5-K003, administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/FEMA.)

EMS folks can test their skills in chemical, biological, radiation scenarios. For just $14.95 you can download the game and play again and again.

Wait – there is more. The game is also open to the public to learn. More difficult than HALO, more terms than a long D&D session, more realistic than Mario. The game was closed due to popular demand but as promised its now open.
