BaFa BaFa is a cultural simulation game that teaches participants a great deal about cultural differences, assumptions, and misunderstandings. The overall purpose of the game is to increase cultural awareness and sensitivity among participants, to improve their ability to work with and relate to members from cultures that differ from their own. Participants are divided into two groups, each adopting a previously unknown culture. When members from the differing cultures visit each other’s group, observations are made and conclusions discussed. This activity increases cultural awareness and sensitivity among participants, and assists employees, students, and professionals from all areas in working with diverse populations.
Presenter(s): American Indian student services staff.

Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. At the end of the training, each volunteer will put their skills to the test during a disaster simulation. Those completing the training receive a free CERT T-shirt and backpack filled with disaster supplies. Please note there is a Feb. 29 registration deadline for this training.
