Mobile Fire Safety House
This house is a mobile laboratory which prepares all ages for the unexpected occurrence of fire through the use of several real-life simulations. The house is equipped with many devices that help teach a variety of fire safety concepts. A fog machine which generates simulated smoke allows children to practice "crawling low" in a fire situation. A heated doorknob impresses upon children the need to feel closed doors to determine a safe route out. A log-lit fireplace in the living room reminds participants of the many mishaps that can occur around an open flame. An escape ladder is used to demonstrate exiting from a bedroom window. A fully-equipped kitchen, 911 phone system and various other safety-related devices are built into the house.
