911 for Kids

MVRDA is proud to participate in the Red E Fox public education program. The program targets school aged children from Kindergarten to Grade 3. The Red E Fox program is presented in the school classroom and is delivered in both English and Spanish.​
 
Red E Fox is a full-size costumed mascot that talks about how to properly identify emergencies and home to dial 9-1-1. Red E Fox is always accompanied by at least one “human” handler who leads the classroom instruction. Whenever possible, Red E is also accompanied by a uniformed member of the local law enforcement, fire service, or emergency medical services agency. Request for a Red E Fox classroom presentation requires a minimum of thirty (30) days advanced notice. ​
