Get Prepared Today! 

The American Red Cross is offering FREE, interactive virtual preparedness presentations to Kansas and Oklahoma Children! March forward with us into preparedness by inviting the children in your family and their friends to join one of our interactive learning sessions in 30 March – 29 April 2021.

The Presentations being offered are:

Prepare with Pedro: Kindergarten-2nd grade students 

In this 30-minute presentation, a Red Cross presenter will read students a storybook about Pedro the Penguin who learns how to prepare and respond safely to home fires. Students will learn about smoke alarms, evacuating a home safely, and reuniting at a designated meeting location outside their home. This virtual storybook presentation is interactive and engaging to students.


The Pillowcase Project: 3rd-5th grade students 

In this 60-minute presentation as part of The Pillowcase Project, students will learn what the American Red Cross does in their communities, and how to prepare for local hazards (tornados, home fires, and general emergency preparedness). Students will also learn emotional coping skills to help them become more resilient and navigate stressful situations. This virtual presentation is interactive and engaging to students, incorporating core curriculum standards.

Attached is a list of the dates/times and platforms that are being offered.  If you are interested in any of the presentations, please send an email to and we will send you a link to the presentation.


Come and learn to be safe with us! Hope to see you soon! (virtually, of course)
