SOUTHBURY, CT--(Marketwire - May 31, 2012) - All parents want a summer filled with fun and life-long memories for the kids. Much time is spent finding the right camp, field trips and organizations that can offer the most for their child. "However, when choosing an organization to care for a child in the summer months, parents should think about safety as well," says Brian Miller, president and COO of DIGIKIDS ®, a child ID company offering the most advanced and effective child safety ID available today.
"We encourage all parents, camp organizers and anyone who cares for children to think about being prepared before an incident happens," says Miller. "And, being prepared is as simple as creating a few documents on each child in the event he or she goes missing."
DIGIKIDS owners offer child ID safety kits that give parents and caregivers, like camp organizers, an easy-to-carry DIGIKIDS business card-sized CD-ROM filled with information about the child in the event of an emergency. This information can then be quickly turned over to law enforcement officials, the media, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), and other agencies with data on a child that can be used for distributing pre-formatted flyers and posters -- complete with high-resolution photos and last-minute details -- anywhere in the world via internet email.
"Imagine a camp providing counselors with a key ring filled with individual child ID safety cards that can be passed onto each counselor as the child moves from activity to activity throughout the day," says Miller.
According to 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.
"The first 20 minutes following a disappearance are absolutely crucial," says Miller. "Quality up-to-date photos and physical descriptions are law enforcement's best aid to a safe recovery."
