Abstract

Training is an important part of emergency preparedness activities. Unfortunately the budget cuts and economic downturn is taking a toll on government agencies' ability to conduct large scale exercises. The use of ICT in emergency preparedness can seriously lower the training costs if the trainees are motivated to use the systems. In this study we present an ongoing research we are carrying out with a county public health department to streamline their trainings. We use motivational affordances theory to guide our design efforts.
