New mascot adopted to encourage emergency preparedness


CONCORD – The state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management has a new mascot called "Ready."

The mascot is a Chinook puppy, the official N.H. state dog, and will be used to encourage the public to prepare for emergencies this month during National Preparedness month.

According to the division, the mascot will post a challenge on the emergency management Facebook page to help residents stay informed, complete an emergency plan and build an emergency kit.

Residents who complete one of the challenges can enter to win an item from Ready by posting a picture to the emergency management Facebook or Twitter accounts or by mailing the image to: Ready’s Preparedness Challenge, HSEM, 33 Hazen Dr., Concord, NH 03305.
