SOUTHBURY, CT--(Marketwire - Mar 28, 2012) - Most parents know how to keep their kids safe as they go through their everyday routines. But, it's the extraordinary circumstances that we might not be prepared for, according to Brian Miller, president and COO of DIGIKIDS®. "The question I want parents to ask themselves is: What can I do now to protect my child if they ever go missing?" says Miller.
"When a child goes missing, we automatically think about a possible kidnapping. But, many children just drift away from a parent or guardian, particularly in a crowd," says Miller. "The panic felt is still the same, but knowing how to find that child quickly is the key to any circumstances around a missing child."
DIGIKIDS is a child ID company offering the most advanced and effective child safety ID available today. "DIGIKIDS-ID kits can make a difference in how long a child goes missing," says Miller.
According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), far too many parents are not prepared to act in a missing child emergency. DIGIKIDS Quick Response™ software can get this vital information into the hands of authorities anywhere in the world within minutes.
For example, if a child is missing at an outdoor event like a carnival, and the parent is carrying a wallet-size DIGIKIDS-ID card with the vital information about the child, this information can be printed and in the hands of event officials and security in minutes. Imagine a photo of the missing child in the hands of many within a very short period of time.
"In the case of a kidnapping, it is very well known that time is of the essence as trails of the missing person grow cold," says Miller. "Parents can be prepared to react quickly if this potentially devastating event should happen to a child."
These Child ID Kits allow parents to provide law enforcement officials, the media, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), and other agencies with a DIGIKIDS business card-sized CD-ROM (easily carried in a pocket or purse and operates in any PC with a CD-ROM drive). Parents are then only moments away from distributing pre-formatted flyers and posters -- complete with high-resolution photos and last-minute details -- anywhere in the world via internet email.
