Japan is a very active earthquake country and in Tokyo, the fire department is making sure residents are ready for the next one. They do that by simulating natural disasters and catastrophic situations so when they do occur, people will think more clearly and react quicker leading to lives saved.
The Earthquake Simulator has programmed the exact seismic patterns of the 1995 Great Hanshin Earthquake and the 2011 Great Tohoku Earthquake.
