Pedro the Penguin at American Red Cross
Meet Pedro, the penguin who teaches pre-school children about first safety and checking smoke alarms. Pedro also teaches children two ways to escape from the house during a fire and how to crawl below the smoke. It's a fun and interactive way for children to learn at the American Red Cross of Sandhills. We need volunteers to dress up as Pedro, join us in teaching children about fire safety.
