  • Red E. Fox Presentations

    The 9-1-1 Mascott is an orange and white fox named Red E. Fox. The Sheriff's Office Communications Section gives 9-1-1 Presentations featuring the Red E. Fox Mascott. Actual 9-1-1 Operators conduct the presentations. They are well qualified to give the presentations that were designed for kids from 3 to 7 years of age.

    Presentations are usually given at schools that have contacted the Communications Section and scheduled a presentation. The presentation focuses on teaching kids the difference between emergency situations and non-emergency situations. It instructs kids on how to call and when it is ok to call 9-1-1.

    The presentation gives kids a little insite on the workings of 9-1-1 emergency services. The instructor emphasizes to the kids on the importance of knowing their phone numbers and addresses. They also emphasize on being a good observer.

    On this photograph to the right you see one of our Communications Specialists in the Red E. Fox suit and the one in uniform is one of our Communications Shift Supervisors.

    Presentations are given to different class sizes. It can be one class or it can be several grades at the same time. Presentations are also given on special occasions or during career development days.

    Here you see our proud employees with Red E. Fox giving the Thumbs Up after the presentation.

Students come from different agencies from around EL Paso or anywhere in the Training Academy's Region. This particular class consisted of Peace Officer Cadets learning radio procedures.
