LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- A tornado simulator and the First Alert Weather team brought many people out to the Museum of the Great Plains on Saturday to learn about severe weather safety. This was the second annual Fifth Season showcase put on by 7NEWS and the museum.
More than twenty vendors came out such as; State Farm, American Red Cross, and the Oklahoma Science matter van all to educate people about weather safety and weather science. Guests also enjoyed the museums' hands-on interactive exhibits, a tornado simulator, raffles and the chance to meet the First Alert Weather Team.
Executive Director of the Museum of the Great Plains, John Hernandez, said their goal of the day was to provide education to the community and families.
“This is one of those times you need to take the time you need to come to the museum,” Hernandez said. “A lot of the things that we have here the vendors, the weather people. These are the life changing events you need to be prepared for bad weather. What are you going to do and where do you need to go and who do you need to look to if you need help."
He said the First Alert Weather Team did a great job at providing that important information not only through interaction with visitors but with workshops and seminars during the day as well.
