Facilitate Learning with Patch

Who is Patch?

Patch is the mascot for the CDA who participates in community outreach programs and is featured in local parades. This friendly lion also visits pre-schools and child-care locations to teach kids about emergencies and talk to them about when to call 9-1-1.

What does a Patch visit include?

During a visit with Patch, children will:

  • Get pumped with his exciting entrance
  • Learn about emergencies through an interactive dialogue
  • Listen to a storybook that reinforces what the children have learned
  • Be able to give examples of when to dial 9-1-1
  • And, last but not least, give Patch “high fives” and receive age appropriate Patch swag!

How can I request a visit from Patch?
