Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and tsunamis. We’re far more familiar with these events than we used to be. Severe weather events uncharacteristic of the season catch us off guard. Some of these adversities may even be manmade such as fires and toxic spills. But regardless of the source, these events could easily become disasters if we are unprepared. It is no secret that resilient communities fair better during times of crisis.
This deck is another of the original Bounceback decks written for and with the help of a grant from the Maine Emergency Management Agency and local first responders. Use this deck with your family to practice the Skills & Attitudes of resilience while responding to the challenges presented. Use them in a pro-active way to discuss and form safety plans. Use them in large community forums to build strategies to cope with adverse events

- If you are just joining our game, please follow this link for a little background information on how we are playing this particular game.
BounceBack will be available for purchase via our website soon. We’d like to introduce you to BounceBack by playing a bi-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) game on our homepage using our free Downloadable Demonstration Deck.
Your Challenge Card from our Downloadable Demonstration Deck is featured above. Once you’ve dealt with the challenge, magnify your screen and take a close look at the bottom of the card. There you will see the Skills & Attitudes we feel might be most helpful in managing the scenario. You can also use other skills and attitudes that you find helpful as long as you can explain how you would apply them. We challenge you to find new ways of responding to adversity.
Which of these Skills & Attitudes will you choose to apply?
Follow along alone, with a friend or a group. Talk to others and find out how they would respond. We can learn much from one another. But if we wish to learn from our experiences, we must first get through them.
