Readiness Education and Development (R.E.D.) Program

The R.E.D. Program incorporates several aspects of Federal Emergency Management Agency’s “Be A Hero” program, the Department of Homeland Security’s Ready campaign, lessons learned, and best practices from first responders throughout the United States.

Meet "Ready" Red and Barrett

Red and Barrett

Emergencies and natural disasters are scary concepts to children, but even they can find reassurance and empowerment when taught about these situations.

Designed for children anywhere from ages 3-18, our curriculum not only educates our students on various natural and man-made disasters, it prepares them to respond. Modified in complexity and depth to always be age-appropriate, our program sensitizes students to certain concepts in order to be desensitized enough to function during an emergency.

Students will join “Ready” Red and Barrett in discovering ways to stay safe in various scenarios.

  • Curriculum derives concepts from FEMA’s “Be a Hero!” program and simplifies them to be age-appropriate and engaging.
  • Red and Barrett teach students to work together as a team to keep themselves and those around them safe.
  • Topics introduce students to various situations and empower them to remain calm and unafraid.

What Is a Red Team?

An independent group that challenges an organization to improve its effectiveness.

Red teaming is normally associated with assessing vulnerabilities and limitations of procedures, systems or structures.

Red teaming refers to the work performed to provide an adversarial perspective, especially when this perspective includes plausible tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) as well as realistic policy and doctrine.
