This afternoon in Elms, we became disaster management experts! We worked in teams, taking on the role of geologist, information coordinator and decision maker to ensure the safety of the people of Montserrat as the volcano erupted. We made our decision based on the information we received from helicopter reports, then gave our decision to the governor (Mrs Hope), who rated our decision. Not only did we learn about the human consequences of volcanic eruption, we also developed our teamwork and communication skills. We made some fantastic decisions based on the information we were given, which would possibly have saved many lives in a real, unfolding eruption situation.
