Blank Children's Hospital

Severe Weather Learning Experience Tour

In addition to teaching children about fire safety, the Fire Safety House at Blank Children's Hospital can also be used to train children about what to do in severe weather such as thunderstorms and tornadoes.

The house is equipped with strobe lights over the windows to simulate lightning; speakers to play the sounds of rain, thunder, wind and a tornado siren. A subwoofer to shake the trailer with each crack of thunder; a television on which participants watch a simulated severe weather news advisory; and a weather radio that plays severe weather alerts. The severe weather simulation is controlled by a computer and stereo system in the control room.

During the severe weather simulation, children learn how to understand severe weather watches and warnings on television, assume the proper crouching position during a tornado and remain calm during a storm.
