School Presentations

The Red E. Fox program is available to all schools in Cass County.  This program contains a video that instructs children how and when to dial 9-1-1 on a four to seven year old level.  The children also practice dialing 9-1-1 on a special phone that simulates a dial tone which teaches the children how to use the phone to dial 9-1-1, when to dial, and what to expect when 9-1-1 is called.  At the end of the presentation, the children are presented with a special bag of goodies that help reinforce the lesson from Red E. Fox.

This program is available to any children’s group and can be altered for younger or older children.  To arrange a presentation, call Marie Athearn, Cass County 9-1-1 Director at 816-887-1952.

Civic Organization

The 9-1-1 Department is available for speaking engagements at civic organizations and neighborhood watch groups.  Presentations would cover important tips about 9-1-1 and the Emergency notification system CodeRED that is available in Cass County.
