On Jan. 23, B-ALERT — UAB’s emergency notification system —reached 40,000 employees and students to warn them of tornadoes in the area.

We invite families with children ages 7 or 8 years old to participate. The study involves up to 31 visits to the UAB Youth Safety Lab. Parents respond to questionnaires and children engage in a state of the art virtual pedestrian environment and complete various other tasks and activities. Families will earn up to $600 for their participation, including $100 for each 2-hour visit and $25 for each 30-minute training session. Parking is provided. Children receive a toy at each visit. There are no medical procedures involved and most children enjoy participating. Call the UAB Youth Safety Lab at 205-934-4068 to enroll or ask questions. You can also email us at safetylab@uab.edu
