School Assemblies

Are your students and staff ready for the next disaster?

Get your school prepared for emergencies with a dynamic, interactive school assembly delivered by retired Santa Ana Police Department Officer John Reed and his ever ready companion Ready Fox!

During an interactive 30-minute assembly led by Officer John Reed, also known as Officer Friendly, your students and staff will learn how to get ready for a disaster at home or at school. They will learn:

As part of the curriculum, students receive a fun ReadyOC start-up family readiness kit which includes an emergency documents bag, family emergency contact sheet, an emergency kit checklist and more. The kit helps families start planning for emergencies together at home and better prepares the community of Orange County.

"Dear Officer Reed, thank you for teaching us what to do if an emergency happens, it helped a lot. One thing I knew is what to do when an earthquake happens. One thing I learned is how to survive a flash flood. My favorite part is when you take out the fox and tell jokes, it’s really funny!"
