However, traditional training approaches, e.g. evacuation drills, hardly simulate the real world emergency, which lead to the limitation of reality and poor interaction. In ad-dition, traditional approaches may not provide investigation of participants' behavior during evacuations and give feedback after training. As a novel and effective alternative to overcome these limitations, in this paper, a VR-based training prototype system is designed and implemented for enhance earthquake evacuation safety. Key modules including earthquake scenario simulation, damage representation, interaction, player investigation and feed-back are developed. In the immersive VR environment, players can be provided with learning outcomes as well as behavior feed-back as crucial goals for safety training. Based on the result of the evaluation, this prototype has proven to be promising for enhanc-ing earthquake evacuee safety andshows positive pedagogical functions.
