Rex the Ready Lion 
Rex is the mascot of the Ready Kids Campaign and has been helping kids learn how to make an emergency supply kit, a family emergency plan and be ready for many different kinds of unexpected situations.  Rex works with the Indiana County’s Health and Human Services Subcommittee for Emergency Preparedness and spends much of his time visiting schools, day care centers and community events helping to teach children and their families the importance of being prepared in an event of an emergency!

Rex is available to visit your group or event!
