2022 Program Feature: IMMERSED
FEMA’s IMMERSED uses virtual reality (VR) technology to connect people on a more personal level to flood risks and ways to reduce them. It’s difficult for people to imagine the impacts of something that hasn’t yet happened, and planning for the future can take a back seat to the pressing needs of the moment. VR helps overcome this barrier by creating an experience to help people better understand the risks associated with flooding and explore, in a safe environment, how to address them. IMMERSED uses virtual reality to walk the user through several different scenarios of flood risk, then walks them through the scenarios again after the flood risk has been mitigated.
