Mobile Survive Alive Unit
Every year more that 12,000 Milwaukee students get the opportunity to experience the Survive Alive House, for those we miss, we bring the experience to you. The Milwaukee Fire Department has two mobile Survive Alive Houses, one is stationed at Summerfest in the children's area and the other is available from April 1st until September30th.
These mobile units give children the educational experience of escaping from a house fire. Children are given a brief instructional introduction and then are ushered into a bedroom. Cinematic smoke is pumped into the room and children are given an opportunity to demonstrate how they would get out. Staying low below smoke, feeling the door and yelling for help are all reinforced during this unique learning experience.
Private schools are encouraged to have their students participate in this unique learning opportunity. Community groups hosting large events may make a request for the mobile Survive Alive House.
Note: During the fall and winter months this is not available. Interested parties should contact the fixed location Survive Alive House (414) 385-3240 to request a class.
