SL as Disaster Preparation

Second Life is being used as a simulation environment for disaster training and preparation

For example, according to Team Mascot, the Idaho Bioterrorism Awareness and Preparedness program, Play2Train, uses Sl islands that re-create local communities.
The PA Consulting Group Demo Island includes both a detailed gas station and a more general test area for simulated disaster response training.
Similar efforts are underway on Health InfoIsland.
