A Smile Today - Can Save the Life of Your Child Tomorrow!
-- Free Child Photo ID Kits to Be Offered at October 25 Child Safety Event.
(Chattanooga, Tennessee)- An estimated 2,000 children are reported missing every day in the United States according to a May 2009 National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) study released. The majority are recovered quickly. Nearly one in six missing children is recovered as a direct result of someone recognizing a photograph and contacting authorities. Local representatives from the Lifetouch National School Studios, ‘Smile Safe Kids' initiative a ‘Take 25' campaign sponsor, will be on site at the Sunday, October 25 Child Safety & Health Prevention event hosted at North American Credit Services (2810 Walker Rd in Chattanooga) taking photographs that will be provided for free to participants as a part of the Child ID resource kits. Lifetouch's rapid response team provides 24/7 retrieval of children's photographs, thereby giving law enforcement an essential tool - a current photograph - in the event a child goes missing.
NCMEC urges everyone to pay close attention to posters and photographs of missing children. In addition, NCMEC encourages parents and guardians to practice good safety measures by following the important safety tips noted below:
1) Keep an accessible, up-to-date, good-quality photograph of your child in case of an emergency.
2) Never let young children go places alone. Be clear about the places and homes they may visit.
3) Know where your children are and whom they are with at all times.
4) Never leave children unattended in a vehicle, whether it's running or not.
5) Talk openly to your children about safety. Make an outing to a mall or park a "teachable" moment.
Additional local and regional community participants will provide information and resources featuring fire, auto, home, pedestrian, water, sports and recreation, poison prevention with representatives from: the Collegedale Police Department bike safety and child finger printing education resources, Tennessee Highway Patrol's D.A.R.E. program, Tennessee Safety Council with "Ollie the Otter", Chattanooga Fire Marshalls, YMCA, Kids on the Block, Erlanger's T.C. Thompson Children's Hospital ‘Safe & Sound' Program, Hamilton County Health Department, Parents Are First Teachers (PAFT), Children's Advocacy Center, Blood Assurance, ‘Beat the Heat' race car team, Face painting by the "Chatta-Town-Clowns", to list just a few. Partnering together to help keep our kids safe and healthy! There will be much for the entire family and it's all free.
