In honor of National Preparedness Month, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment has launched www.fredthepreparednessdog.org, a new website with tips for family and pet preparedness featuring their mascot Fred. A two-year-old German Shepherd and community outreach personality, Fred frequents schools, fairs, and other state-wide events to engage children ages 5-12 in preparedness efforts.
View Fred’s new website for preparedness resources that can be shared with children, parents, teachers, and partners. Fred is also very active on Facebook and Twitter and these messages can be shared with other audiences. Download Fred’s new iOS application that was also launched for National Preparedness Month to play free preparedness games for iPhone and iPad.
