Child Safety ID Cards
Imagine you are at a theme park, fair or festival or crowded mall or store. Now imagine you and your child getting separated. It happens every day. It is a potentially dangerous situation and hopefully one that is over with quickly. However, what if it goes on for more than a few minutes… a few hours…
The single most import item needed when a child is missing is an up-to-date photograph that is immediately available. It helps even more when all the vital information such has height, weight, eye and hair color are included. A parent in a panic because they can’t find their child will often have trouble relaying such details accurately. The last thing you want to say when your child is missing is “Let me go home to find a picture.”
Child Rescue Network regularly provides these valuable tools to parents at community and special events throughout Florida. Our trained volunteers help process the kids including taking a thumbprint and photograph of each child. Parents walk away with safety information and a Child Safety ID Card for their wallet.
Child Rescue Network is very proud to partner with Ident-A-Kid Services of America. IDK is a for-profit company that provides Safety ID Cards, Complete Campus Security Systems and communication software for schools all over the country. They provide a high quality product at a nominal cost and we highly recommend their programs.
As a Strategic Partner, Ident-A-Kid helps distribute our safety information to parents nationwide and underwrites some of our program costs each year.
You probably have a very valuable tool to help right in your pocket or purse. We encourage parents to use the camera on your cell phone to take a picture when entering crowded locations. You’ll have what they are wearing that day as well as that important up-to-date photo available to share. Obtaining Safety ID Cards provides that addition information and serves as a backup so that you never have to waste a moment while trying to find your child.
In the lost child scenario, we encourage kids play “The Freeze Game”… learn about this and other safety tips
